Meagan's Confirmation Cake....

For Meagan's Confirmation, I decided, I would take care of the cake. So, after calling a few bakery's, and almost falling out of my chair with every call I made $$$$$ I, decided I would make her cake. So, I went to the nearest cake supply store and bought a Cross shape cake pan for $9.99, some sugar roses 4 for $ 1.00, and some eatable pearls $2.49 a bag. I already had the cake mix and glaze. My total purchase $15.97 I had really wanted to roll out fondant but, I didn't have time to learn and I already had the glaze... (The fondant is my next goal) I had so much fun applying each little pearl with a tooth pick. I know it's not so professional looking but, I think with more practice I can do better.
Plus I saved tons of money....

So,what's baking in your kitchen?

Meagan gets Confirmed...

This Saturday Meagan, my niece received The Sacrament of Confirmation at Our Lady of Perpetual Help. She chose her uncle Romeo to be her Sponsor..( My camera was acting funny. Of all times.... So,you might have to squint a little.) Here they are with our Bishop Daniel Flores. After the mass, we had lunch with our Bishop in the parish hall. Nathan refused to leave his favorite stuffed Dinosaur "Chico" at the table... After the lunch, we went back to Bey's house for a small reception here she is posing with the cake I made her.... While everyone sat lounging around watching Nathan play with Baileys Wii

I noticed something..... I took a close up .... and then made the mistake of telling him. He quickly fixed his mistake.... His boots were backwards the whole time ....

I am hooked!

I don't know why, but sometime between the time my computer caught a nasty virus and the time it took fix it, I got hooked!
Meet Teresa!
Teresa is a young woman dominated by her own greed. Through her beauty, intelligence, and ambition, she gets what she wants. Her parents have made great sacrifices to give her a good, decent life, but Teresa wants more.
At the beginning of the story she falls in love with Mariano Sanchez but Teresa leaves Mariano to marry Arturo de la Barrera her college/law professor who is very wealthy.
Arturo loses his fortune because of debts incurred from a case he lost and Teresa cannot accept being poor again. Teresa then seduces his best friend......
And that is it...You will just have to tune in everyday to Telemundo check your local listings... I record mine and watch LATE in evening.

And beginning today will start watching on weekends....
