Heeeeeeerrrrrrrrreeeee's Bubba!

My little jellybean!

It's so cool to get to see your unborn child for the first time, and then you start thinking, oooh, there's something GROWING INSIDE OF ME!!!! That's a little freaky. We got to see the heartbeat, which looks like a little flickery bit of static in the middle of the baby. That was really cool too.

So there you go. There is, without a doubt, or even a flicker of uncertainty, a baby in my belly.

In other news, here's my cake from last night's class:


I was so beat yesterday that I did NOT want to go. Seriously, I was tired to the point where I was whiny. That's not cute. My husband dropped me off so he could help me carry all my stuff in. It's amazing how much stuff you end up needing to schlep back and forth for this class!

I ended up using my buttercream recipe for the blue base frosting, since we had to do that part at home and the instructor couldn't see it in it's untinted state, and the Wilton recipe for the decorations. I was a big old dummy though and beat my icing with the whisk instead of the paddle, and on too high of a speed so it got full of air bubbles. You can see under the rainbow (ha!) some of the bubbles. Lame. It also wouldn't smooth as nice as I would have liked for the same reason. Ah well. Live and learn.

Next week, we get to bring cupcakes. Kick butt!

Congrats on the baby. I couldn't even imagine how weird it'd be to have another human being growing inside me. As a person who's never been pregnant I can't imagine what that would feel like.

And your cake is really cool-looking. Good job!

Awesome first photo of the baby. Really cute cake, LOVE buttercream icing. I swear I went through at least four mixers making that stuff when I first took cake decorating classes.
