I went to Michaels last night and was in heaven as always. Only this time I went to the other side of the store, away from scrapbooking, and ended up in the cake decorating section!! I bought some basics for my first cake idea: a fall cake for Thanksgiving. My mom gave me her Wilton book from 1983 (!!) when she took the class (she was pregnant with me and actually stopped going because the cake smells made her sick he he). She always made our cakes growing up and I have many memories attached to these cakes and being in the kitchen with her. I want to be able to do that for my future children as well, and now I have her book!!!
