Now to chronicle how my next cupcake thought relates to life........
Wednesday, August 4, 2010
We began by mixing our royal icing, just the same as we’d done last week, which went well. But when it came to the “floodwork” part of our lesson, it got really tricky. “Floodwork” is when you pipe out a picture outline using black icing, and then fill it in with coloured icing, just like an airbrushed painting. I wish I was able to get a photo of my hands covered in red icing, dripping all over my work area – it was very funny. After a little practise though, I finally got the technique and below are my “works of art”, “Elmo” and “Ladybug” - I’m very happy with my results:
Now to share my next cupcake/life analogy:
A final quote from Buddha used in the discussion about forgiveness really got me thinking.
"How well did you love? How fully did you live? How deeply did you learn to let go?"
Maybe these are some of the questions God will ask when we get to Heaven. I hope to be prepared with some good answers!
