Its pretty easy being green...

I have no idea how this happened, but pretty much everything I have made lately is green. I probably shouldn't over analyze that too much, right? It would require way too much brainpower for a Monday morning.....Green is basically my favorite color. Well, almost. Really teal is. Then green. Then purple and orange are tied. But I digress. What I am saying is, it's pretty up there. I wonder what Google has to say about that:

Green Flowers (or ivy, vines) 
Anybody who has endured a long winter will tell you how jazzed they get at the first glimmer of green in spring. The meaning of flower color in green is about renewal, growth, hope, health and youth. Think of luscious emerald lawns, the smell rich with juicy goodness. You can’t help but smile at the thought. Green is also the color of the heart chakra, and so it takes on the meaning of good health. Bright green is the color of Mother Nature at her highest peak. Feel her bounty and embrace her gifts of harvest and health. Express these sentiments by giving a verdant ivy to a friend or loved one today!

Ooh, I am so happy I checked! Such a nice thing to hear after my nightmare last night. I got lost for 45 minutes in downtown 11:30 at night. I promise you I left half my brain cells somewhere between Canal Street and the Jackie Robinson Parkway. Um yeah, so if you see any, just give me a call. You know it's not good when you turn to your passenger and say "You know those neighborhoods that you are not supposed to stop at red lights. I wonder if this is one of them." 

Just sayin...yep. All in a day's work...
Love this macro- doesn't it look like some kind of cool coral reef in the Caribbean or something? 

Speaking of, that's where I want to be right now. 
Now that's my kind of green. Moving on...

This was a really fun cake to make. Remember Big D.'s super cool awesome boss?
Mr. and Mrs. Awesome Boss made a party for Big D.'s co worker who just got married, and you know wherever the CantStopBaking's go, cake goes too. The color scheme was purple and green, my favorite color combination:
My favorite part of the cake: bling!!

Last but definitely not least, a cake for my gorgeous nephew's upsherin:

That's all folks! 
Happy Happy Monday! Hope its a green one-
