Originally uploaded by jennywennyYesterday I decided to finally open my 'Hello Cupcake' book and bring some sunshine into Skip and Denise's day. I'm so glad I did, these cakes are a lot easier to decorate than I thought, I'll be trying out lots of other ideas soon! I followed the instructions in the book to the tee, although I found that instead of fiddling around with a ziploc bag, I was better off using a proper wilton tip(352) and disposable bag.
A couple of weeks ago I was horrified to find out that Skip had fallen on a tricky descent at the cool breeze century bike ride. He severed his spinal cord and is paralysed from the waist down. I thought it would be nice to take him a treat at the hospital to share with his visitors. I tried to leave it at the front desk as they said they weren't quite ready, but they told me to come down and say 'Hi'. I cant believe how strong and positive he is, it really knocked me for 6 to see such a wonderful guy fighting so hard to get the best mobility he can. He's in a great facility, the Sharp Rehabilitation Center, and they are taking great care of him.
