Pretty busy weekend and week coming up. I have an order to fill for four dozen cupcakes, topped with a red rose. For anyone who has done Wilton and/or can make a butter cream rose on the rose nail you will feel my pain. Thats going to be fun.
Next week I have a 10X3 round due with a dozen cupcakes. It's for a birthday party. I have to use frozen butter cream method to create an old skool pick up truck on the top of the round. The cupcakes will all be topped with hand sculpted items that are relevant to the birthday girls life. Should be interesting. I get to make little fondant records, puppies, tennis equipment and who knows what else. I'll be sure to post some pics when I have the finished product!
This weekend I also have a date. With Leonardo Dicaprio. Yes, you heard me. Leo is second to Tom Hanks in my house. He's that important. I have been stoked about Shutter Island's release since I first heard about it early LAST year. I am a fan of Dennis Lehane's writing. I read Gone Baby Gone and Mystic River and while rummaging through some books I found Sutter Island. The cover wasn't very appealing but I like Lehane so I purchaed the book. Ended up devouring it! Loved it! Early last year while reading my weekly porn-Entertainment Weekly and it was announced that Marty Scorsese was making Shutter Island with none other than Leo. I returned to the book and gave it a second go around...this time reading it with my Ma. Such a great read, even the second time around. I was very sad to hear that they pushed the release date from November to this Friday...but alas, the date has come!
I realize I jumping the gun at this point. It's only Wednesday and already I am talking about weekend plans. I just want this week to be over. I have no motivation this month! Hope everyone else in bloggy land has more luck with the motive!
