This weekend was of course Valentine's Day weekend and on Friday I got an order for a heart cake to feed 20 people.  Instead of just making a really big heart cake that would feed 20 people I decided to make 2 completely different heart cakes that would feed 10 people each.  A yellow cake with buttercream icing, fondant and truffles.  A chocolate cake with rich chocolate icing and sugar flowers.  This was the result:

Mr. Bean's sister and her family came this weekend as well to visit.  Mr. Bean and I were supposed to be going on a Rhine River cruise Saturday night and then dinner at a nice restaurant in Koln with some couples from our church and they were going to babysit.  Unfortunately they cancelled the cruise at the last minute opting for dinner at a local restaurant around here.  Boo!  So we decided to skip it and instead on Saturday evening we all (4 adults, 3 kids) went to a 15th century castle about 15 minutes from our house to partake in their candle lit, live music Valentine's dinner menu.  It was INCREDIBLE.  The kids behaved flawlessly (except that Baby Bean wanted to go to the bathroom, no kidding, 9 times which was perfectly ok because did I mention, HE IS POTTY TRAINED NOW!!!!!!!).  Here are some of the pictures from that evening.  Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day as well!

My sweet family.  What more could I ask for on Valentine's Day.  :)

So my plan to be more regular about posting has not worked out so well.  Sorry!  My cake business on the other hand, BLOOMING!

 This was a simple Elmo cake for a guys birthday.
This was a cake I threw together for Super Sunday at church.  Not my best, but not my worst!  :)

This was the 96 cup-cake cake I did for a retirement ceremony on base the DAY we moved into our house over here.  112 cupcakes made in total.
And today, I got 3 more cake orders!
