SYG cake winners

These crazy put together photos are pics of my table. I really need to get some manniquins (sP) and some display racks. Everyone was touching all over the things and they kept sliding around. So, my next investment has to be racks, insha'Allaah. Here are the other beautiful cakes below.

Wow, I have no idea who made this lovely cake or the story behind it but, it looks yummy.

Made by a sister that lives around the corner from me. Isn't it cute! You can find out how to make this cake yourself by going on youtube and looking up howdini train cakes.

This pillow cake was made by the daughter of my mothers friend. She used marzapin to form the letters and won 3rd place. Her peach cobblers are awesome. so I'm sure pretty sure this cake was delicious as well.
I believe this cake represents the mount of hudaybeeya? It came in 2nd place.

Last, but not least, this cutie has all handpipped roses. It's so cute. I think it was raffled off for $40-45. I hope whoever bought it enjoyed it.
Welp, that's all for today, insha'Allaah (God willing) I will be writing back again tomorrow. Here's what I'm listening to today. Enjoy!

SYG update -cake is served!

So, here's my SYG update. The selling part went, oookay. I asked that I could sell everything with the best of good. I ended up selling 2 items, which turned out awesome after all, because it made up what I paid for my table and dinner. No money lost. BTW Ladies, those dinners were great!
1st Prize winner was this 2 tier wedding cake.

Isn't it beautiful, the flowers are edible! Moving on, the girls poetry and singing was muntaz (good). They all had very beautiful voices -even though I have no idea what they were saying, lol. It's sad that I don't speak arabic by now, maasha'Allaah.

The cakes! On to the other cakes, who ever made this cake with the pink floweres - it was beautiful as well as absolutely tasty. I wish I brought home seconds or had enough money that when they raffled them off I could have bought it. I guess it's a good thing I didn't do either or I'd be 4lbs heavier with a major sugar headache.
I'm getting sugar cravings just looking at it again,lol. Others will be posted in seperately.

Crochet taco yummys.

My 1st custom order crochet order. Sorry it took so long K. I've been so overwhelmed recently, but this was well work the many 'froggings' I had to do to get the tray correct. I ran out of yarn so, I couldn't form a box. Your tray(s) are nice and soft - I couldn't find any liquid startch to stiffen it. Here's your crochet Taco kit in all it's glory. The only thing missing is the guacamole. Hope you love it K.

Items are crocheted with acrylic & wool blended yarns. To clean your set: please wash on cold, gentle cycle and let air dry.
