Because being perfect is not realistic




I am not perfect.....And i don't expect things or anyone to be....
And just to prove it...And laugh about it....


My Fairy ate a chunk out of the Avatar cupcake.....It happens all the time, LOL


Now, you can laugh....I got a new icing pipe...This one uses more icing than my old one...2 times more icing....I ran out!


But you don't see it in the pictures and the kids did not care...
Behind the scenes...Nobody and nothing is perfect...
Next time someone you know or yourself expect perfection....Think again....It is just a picture....Not reality...

Amen Sister, Amen!!!

I've been living by smoke and mirrors for a long, long time ;-)

It's amazing though, how much pressure we put on ourselves for perfection!!

You rate pretty close to perfect in my book.
Love the sparklers.

That yummy looking cake is still "perfectly" fine. And I too have had to make do and err on the side of grace, as we all do. I am so so glad you passed your naturalization test (knew you would!). Happy blogging Frenchy.

Jen said...

now, who would've thought that behind that nicely done perfection are spots with no icing? yet, that does not do anything to the taste...

I needed this reminder. When I decorate cakes for my grandsons' birthdays, I do try for them to look as perfect as I can. I think we do this more for the adults than the children, because as you said, they are perfectly fine with "good enough"!

FYI SUPER MOMMY does NOT exist! I tried on the custome and SENT IT BACK! For some reason it just didn't fit:)
Now, I'm just trying to be the best "ME" I can be. The rest is up to God! Thanks for the reminder:)
Happy Thursday

I just love you because of that...you are so right..nothing and nobody is perfect...if they are, I bet they have lots of headaches! LOL

I really need to start having more fun...cupcakes for a movie party sounds like a fantastic idea.
And yours are pretty close to perfect if you ask me!

But that last picture would have fooled anyone - it's was beautiful. Thanks for pulling the curtains back to let us see your mistakes - we've all been there and it's good to know we're not alone. Smiles.

Amazing...if made cupcakes for my boys (even without the themes!) I'd be the best mom in their eyes. You are so wonderfully creative!
