I would like to see or hear about things you have made with your own two hands (or feet, Im not fussy!) We all have different talents and abilities, maybe you like to sew or knit, chisel or sculpt, draw or paint? Whatever your talent is, please share it with us this week.
So I started racking my brain and came up with several things I have made myself:
First - Cakes & Cupcakes
I have made all of my kids birthday cakes, whatever they decide on. I have also made birthday cakes for many other family members. Here are some of them:
Emma's Care Bear Cake
Grandma McKillip's birthday cake - chocolate cake with peppermint buttercream filling and chocolate buttercream frosting
Ian's Power Ranger cake
Ian's Scooby Doo Cake
Ian's Treasure Chest Cake (for a pirate party)
Zoe's Zoe Cake
Here is the cake and cupcakes I made for my father-in-law's 60th birthday
Zoe's Batman Cakes
Ian's 1/2 Birthday Cupcakes
Martha's Bridal Shower Cake
Death By Chocolate Cupcakes
Grandma & Grandpa McKillip's 65th Anniversary Cake (everything on there is edible)
Here I am (9 months pregnant with Zoe) making my "Welcome Home" cake - the one's the kids frosdted and decorated with my husband for the day I came home form the hospital with Zoe.
And here's the actual cake
Next are cookies and desserts:
I love to cook, and I have several main dishes that are yummy, but my true passion is baked goods and desserts.
Charlotte's Web "Wilbur" cookies
Cherry Vanilla Ribbon Pie
Gingerbread Cookie Christmas Tree - I made this with my two daughters
My Mom's Birthday Apple Crisp (my parents are not cake people)
Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake
Shamrock Pie - a St. Patrick's Day Tradition
Triple Chocolate Torte
Now here are a few things that are not edible that I have made.
Block Guy - made this while playing with my kids one day
This drawing of my three kids
The skeleton costume for my son when he was four years old
Zoe's Christmas stocking - (I've actually made all of my kid's Christmas stockings, this is the only one I have a picture of)
I have made lots of other thing, too. I can cross stitch and I scrapbook and make cards. But for now, this is what I have to show you. Can't wait to see what the rest of you have made!
