Update- we just hit the 200 T shirt mark. We need 200 more to go!! It’s been such an amazing week launching the HopeChest Project- we are half way to our goal of providing 400 orphans with new shoes and shirts. We need to sell 400 Valentines Day HopeChest T shirts to give each child their gift of love. 400 for 400- I don’t want any child left behind! Please pray for the Project every day and help spread the word. Last day to order, Feb. 1st.
On a lighter, fluffier note- are there any Cake Boss stalkers fans out there in bloggy land that love this crazy show like I do? My family loves this tasty, sugary, high energy, fiery tempered reality show with Buddy Valastro and his family. If you’re feeling lost in the batter, Buddy is one of the most successful and renowned cake artists in the United States. Master baker of Carlo’s City Hall Bake Shop in Hoboken, New Jersey, Buddy IS the cake boss. He supervises a team that includes his mother, four older sisters and three brothers-in-law. And when you’re working with family on a daily basis, there is bound to be a lot of drama. The Valastros know drama but and at the end of the day they also know love.
I wish I could have one of his specialty cakes for my birthday. If I could sit down with Buddy and give him my cake order, I would have him build me a 2 layer red velvet cake with his “dirty icing” in chocolate and covered with butter cream. My theme is simple- children of the world. He can make it look scrumptious with his spunky personality and amazing creativity. What a great way to celebrate my birthday and adoption all in one yummy buttery crumb cake.
Just for fun- if you could order a cake today, what would you pick?
