You Always Make Me Smile

I have this thing. I love to dabble in a lot of things. Love to sew. Love to make cards. Love to make decorations…the list goes on, but I also LOVE to bake…for the prettiness factor. CRAZY? Probably..but I do love being able to make my kids happy for their birthdays..and help others out for other occasions.
One of my sons just had a birthday and is OBSESSED with basketball, so of course all he wanted was basketball cake. Well, since we were having just a fun family party, I decided not to go with an entire ball, just half of it. I simple cooked it in an oven safe mixing bowl and it gave me the perfect shape.

And here is a sampling of my love of baking:
