Fun Fact! I have never written a blog with out drinking wine…well maybe like 2 or three but only because coffee was consumed at that time. Welcoming myself back in normal fashion with a glass of red wine titled, “Help is Here”. How appropriate for this day and age of my lovely life.

Where does one even begin?? Jumping right into things. I MISS BLOGGING. I might have been stuck in a rut of nights filled with margaritas and wine after being in the kitchen for far too many hours, pretending as if I actually have a life outside of work. I mean I attend boy band concerts, do yard work and eat pizza like am a college student and not some 25 year old girl just trying to make sure she doesn’t run out of dry shampoo at ANY given time. Turning 26 in a month is looking real good I’d say at this point… fingers crossed. That about sums up this whole year. Short, simple, sweet and very unmemorable, in a way…

If there is one thing that has kept me sane this year, besides copious amounts of coffee and Targets $1 section, doing cakes has got to be the answer. Seriously think I would be literally insane if I didn’t do things like this in my so called free time. Number one love and something like an addiction I would say. When your sister asks you to stop making cakes because even though she goes to the gym 4 days a week, she claims she is getting “fat” considering the amount of baking one does. Taking her title away for number one taste tester real soon…

Between weddings. Birthdays. And Just Because cakes/events I have loved what has come out of my kitchen thus far this year. Its almost over BUT I can promise you that there will still be a few more surprises in store.

Heartbreaks, 12 hour days in the kitchen, realizing your pant zipper has been down all service and many days of spilt coffee, I am super thankful for constant texts from far away friends. Seriously, awesome. Thanks for keeping me going. AND to my mother, for always doing the dishes!!! I promise not to take such a long break again. Spread the word, Nessa is back!

My Weekend Story…

I spent the last few weeks planning for this weekend. So much happened! Between working my actual job, attending training sessions at the gym, visiting friends and shopping for all things sweet things got a little hectic. Not complaining one bit because this is what I truly love to do. I have been so inspired lately by my everyday life I was so happy to let in show in my cakes this weekend.

Here you will find some photos of the wedding cake and baby shower cake I did. My first ombré, woo!

Today I’m relearning what it’s like to do nothing but workout, sip coffee, watch movies and online shop. Oh how I have missed these kinds of days. Bliss.

My Weekend Story…

Classically Chic Bridal Shower

It is currently 12:52 AM as I write this sentence. I most likely won’t be falling asleep, let me rephrase that, attempting to fall asleep for at least another hour. Yes, YouTube is my essential go to tonight to snatch up some quality time admiring my favorite boy band…no shame, never…to pass by the time. Time to not think about work in the kitchen. Time to not think about the amount of Ravioli’s I’ve got to make tomorrow. Time to not think about if I shall workout or consider the 10 + plus hours on my feet in the kitchen my workout. Stop me!

So this is the part where I am filling you in on what I did this past weekend. A lovely bridal shower for two very sweet people. Things like this actually put me at ease and in my natural element.

Scroll on down to see just a glimpse of the things that I created. THANKS to my wonderful mother for help with collecting ingredients, flowers and more.
