Let them eat cake!!

A while ago I agreed to make a cake for a Women's Activity at our church today.  I obviously wasn't anticipating getting sick.  (Don't worry, I washed my hands about 1,000 times.)  I had big plans for this cake, but just didn't have the energy to make those plans a reality.  It is a butter cake with buttercream frosting and gumpaste flowers.  The cake and frosting are from scratch.  The gumpaste is ready made, but I tinted it and shaped it.  I didn't want to mess with making it myself.  Even though it's not what I wanted, I think it still turned out well.  What do you think?
I love making cakes.  Love it.  I really hope that some day I can do wedding cakes.  I'm not there yet, but I think I'm off to a good start!  Anyone need a cake?

Today stinks!  I am so sick! sick.  I have had a cough for a couple of weeks.  It is finally to the point of just being annoying, and not really keeping me down.  I have a UTI (I know, too much info) and a terrible head cold.  I felt fine yesterday and I woke up this morning feeling like death.  My body and I are in a fight and I am loosing!

My nose is so red and raw.  I've already made it through an ENTIRE box of tissues.  I want to go to bed so badly, but what do you do when you are sick and your kids aren't?  Anyone have a good soup recipe they would like to share?

So, this is me for a while.  Hope you don't mind.
