It's Fri-Cake Day

I used to be a baker. Well, not as a profession, but as a Mom whose kid loved cupcakes and cakes. I did take a cake decorating class at Lee Ward's. Remember that store? It was the pre-cursor to Michael's. Anyways.... I took that class and then I did cake decorating for awhile. Again, not professionally, but for friends and family. I've done a few wedding cakes and lots of birthday cakes. When my son was old enough, I encouraged him to cook and bake and he found that he liked baking, too. That's about the time that I stopped baking and he took over. We'd often get up in the morning to find that he made a sheet cake or cupcakes with some type of interesting frosting on top. I haven't baked in ages, but I still like to eat cupcakes. My favorite type is white cake with white buttercream frosting. Yummy. So here's the reason for this cupcake card... There's a story on Kim's blog about Fri-Cake Day. Fri-Cake day is what her Grandpa used to call Fridays since that was the day Grandma used to bake a cake. This card was made in honor of Fri-Cake Day. Even though this cupcake has pink frosting, I'm imagining it tasting like buttercream...

OMG that is so darn cute! Love pink frosting! Yummy! I can just smell it from here! White cake is my favorite with butter cream frosting too!

Glad to know I'm not the only one that does not like Chocolate cake!

Love this card Debbie!! But, with all the talk about cake, I'm DYING for white cake, NO icing!!! I'm leaving on vaction Sunday so I can not bake a cake.

I found some craft supplies earlier this week from Lee Wards & couldn't for the life of me remember where they were. I guess they used to be where Michael's is now. :)
