My friend Debbie recently started doing something she’s always wanted to do: decorating cakes, cupcakes and cookies. She’s been taking classes and practicing, practicing, practicing. And she gets to listen to Oprah on XM Satellite Radio while she’s doing it.
Debbie says: I really love that I am doing something that I have ALWAYS wanted to do. I am doing the shoes (see picture) as the favor for my friend Emma’s bridal shower and then making a cupcake stand w/chocolate cupcakes with a leopard print heart and pale pink flowers (trying to add some class to them) on top of the frosting.
Why leopard print? Emma’s fiance hates animal print, he thinks it’s the epitome of tacky. Emma loves it, but is giving it up once she gets married. Debbie’s throwing her a Goodbye Animal Print shower.
I hope someday Debbie can turn her passion into her paycheck!
