3. The latest cake I’ve made!!
I got the honor of making a cake for one of my very dear friend’s engagement party. I have known this beautiful woman since grade 3. She has been an inspiration and a role model to me for most of my life. She has so many virtues that I admire, she is a hard worker, committed and honest . When I first met Alicia, let’s say we didn’t hit it off as best friends right away, but I knew that I wanted her to be my friend and persisted ( in other words, I didn’t give her a choice) she was going to be my friend whether she liked it or not. Eventually she gave in, and we became BFF’s. We went to the same elementary, middle and high school and she always stood beside me and my crazy ideas (some of them were questionable) she would just stand there, roll her eyes, laugh and say ‘Oh Tina…’. Through the drama, the heartbreaks, the awkward growing stages and the ridiculous math tests she would always be there for me. I still remember those days when we would play with ‘My Little Pony’s’ for hours, or when her family would take me to the beach with them and I would spend the whole weekend at their place. They always made me feel welcomed and made sure I was well fed (and still to this day I get cookies and veggies from there garden! Can you say lucky?!) . I love her family so much, that her mother is, and will always be my second Mom. Alicia is the type of person that makes you feel welcomed anywhere, and you would just want her to be your friend (well, too bad she’s mine). To me, Alicia has become my sister.
Alicia and Jake (her fiance) have made so many steps in their new life together, they bought a house, got engaged and have already made their parents grand-kitty-parents! I’m so excited for their wedding. Alicia stood beside me for one of the most special days of my life, and I can’t wait to do the same for her! and then nag her to have BABIES RIGHT AWAY!!! So the title of this cake is ‘Birds of a Feather’ because we always stick together (and of course, now her and Jake will be together!) Can’t wait for them to start an amazing journey!
