Hi there,

Summer is here but today it was raining almost all day..not fun. I woke up early to enter my cake into the Marin County Fair competition because I needed my sister to drive me there. I made a Knitting basket for the competition inspired by the tutorial by cake journal. I weaved a basket instead of using the basket weave embosser and I added a pair of scissors. Here are the pictures, my kids really want me to win...
We will be going to the fair this weekend and my kids are really looking forward to it, they love going to the Fair because they can play all the rides all day.

Last Sunday, my youngest son, Seamus really wanted to sell Lemonade at the Stern Grove Festival.  I helped him make fresh homemade Lemonade and get all the stuff ready on his wagon. Then we walked to the Grove. It was so crowded down there and we were very lucky to have a lot of customers that day. He was so happy. He was shy at the beginning, but he tried to be polite and ask the people there if they wanted to buy his Lemonade. He said he will do it again next week. So proud of him .

 It’s June already, we haven’t  seen a lot of sun. Still more rain to come according to the weather  forecast.  We have been busy the last couple weeks, we are going to sell the house and  move to a new place where my husband job take us to.  We have open houses  two times a week, and we have to keep the house clean all the time. I hope this will be over soon.
I want to talk about  “Friendship”.  I was born and raised in Jakarta, Indonesia. I had a lot of friends there and I love making new friends. My parent always said it’s easy to make enemies but hard to make friends. It’s true, since I moved here in San Francisco after we got married in 1997, it was hard for me to make friends in here.  Maybe because I didn’t grow up here.  I have tried and tried, and it seems like I have no luck finding a true friend. Anyway,  I am lucky that my friends back in Jakarta still care about me and we still keep in touch on a daily basis. I have  group chats with my friends from High School and college on my blackberry messenger. They keep updating me about everything going on in Jakarta.  Sometimes, a lot of jokes will crack me up and make me so happy. I have a lot of friends who cares for me and love me very much. It was not easy to find a good and loyal friend, and I am so thankful  that my friends always there for me. Some people said when you leave apart  then your friendship will grow apart  too..., I’m glad that hasn't happened to me.
However, sometimes there are friends who take advantage of your friendship. They only come to you when they need you and only think about themselves. I’m so glad I don’t have a friend like that. We always care for each other. So, if you really love your friend and care about them, show them that you love them, if you never meet them for a long time, send her a note, say Hi, or pick up the phone and call them, maybe they need you.

Anyway, I want to share with you a cake that I made for one of my clients. Her daughter graduated from middle school. Here is the cake :

Since next week is the last day of school, I was thinking about making something for the teachers, and I saw this project at :, Crayon Monograms. Look what I made for Mrs. Conti and Mrs. Chiarani. I hope they will like it.

One for  Mrs. Conti and the other one for Mrs. Chiarani

Enjoy your Sunday...
