Stephen and I spent the day with our friend Glenda. Her son has an amazing cake business. To say he is a cake decorator, just doesn't say enough about his talent. There are many cake decorators. Even to say he is an artist, is an understatement. You may recall seeing his work in my June entry, when I posted about my parent's 50th wedding anniversary party. This man is truly gifted, and if he wanted, could be featured in Southern Living. [I think he should be] But he wants to keep his business small for now, I believe. His mom ain't too shabby either. She's downright inspiring to me. I would need to make a whole entry about her to even give you a small idea. But for now I'll just tell you, she delivers his cakes and sets them up for parties, weddings, etc. as needed.
Stephen and I were invited to go with her on her delivery route yesterday. I was a little nervous at first, afraid Stephen would, I don't know...Be Stephen. I photographed the first job, which was a cupcake tree [I'll get permission, and post that if they don't mind] for their photo album. A cupcake tree is a great idea for a child's birthday party! They are pretty as a picture to behold, and easy on the parents, for there isn't a lot of cake slicing involved.
As Glenda was setting up the cake in the community center, Stephen got a little antsy sitting in the car. Although it was very windy, we got out and I let him walk around and play behind the building. My photo-eye couldn't believe the background! A combination of the gray clouds, and the old trees, mixed with a few old barns and various other buildings, not to mention, the hills in the distance! Ahhh! It made me feel alive. I knew it would be perfect for capturing Stephen. Being, Stephen.
A sidenote to Glenda...Thanks again, we had a great time!
