So...here you go! Enjoy. :)
The final cake in the first course - all buttercream, baby!
The final (only) cake in the second course. In the background you can see the option Wilton's gave us to complete - a cake that looks like the Easter Bunny hopped by, saw a cake, and took a shit on it. Full of springtime bliss, they are!! I couldn't handle it, so I went for a more seasonal design. ;)
The first cake in the third course and my first time playing with fondant. Wutwut.
My final cake for the third course. Again, the options from Wilton were very June and specifically wedding. Again, I opted to make mine more seasonal. The awesome instructor offered the idea of putting a pretty, seasonal bow on the lower cake. It helped the situation a lot, but I'd much prefer to have the cakes stacked rather than columned. :D You can't tell in the photo, but the base color of each cake matches the border of the other. Oh, and this is fondant.
One of my classmates compared our cakes tonight. Her cakes are loverly but not my style, and my cakes are definitely not her style. :) She said, "I'm Martha Stewart and you're Ace of Cakes." I'll take that as a compliment.

So apparently the situation in the home in which we previously resided has gone down the shitter. I know I complained numerous times about the gauche activities (such as removing a window screen, propping it against the house, and sticking an antenna out the window…or parking a shopping cart in the front yard) and noise here.
But now, according to our renters (who understandably want out - and if we could afford to let them out, we would, but they're as screwed as we are now) there's weed smoking, drug dealing, attempted murder with a vehicle after the would-be murder victim bashed in the windshield with a bat, parties with 50+ people in the streets well after midnight, and MORE!
I'm disgusted by the barbarians in our neighborhood. What a bunch of motherfucking fucks. I'm not sure what I can do as an absentee owner, but I contacted the property management company that takes $120 from us every month to keep the animals penned and the lawns mowed. We'll see how they respond….
If only we could get out of that house. If only it weren't $200,000 upside down right now. Gods, we'll lose our shirts if we can't get renters in there once the current ones have finally been released from their lease. Lose. Our. Shirts.
