I took my mom out to lunch after her doctor's appointment and she enjoyed eating Chinese food very much. I was happy to see her it. She has been losing weight because she doesn't like the food she is given at the nursing home and I am not allowed to bring in non-kosher food.

Other smile: I shared a collection of latke recipes with her doctor. He is known in his family as the "King of Latkes". He should love the book I made.

I decided to count my blessings and there are lots of things that I am grateful for. That always makes me smile.

I went to the White Flour Bakery Shoppe and had another decorating class. This time I learned how to use fondant. It is a lot easier than working with buttercream but I prefer buttercream. I was exhausted and really didn't want to go but once I got there, I had a really good time. I will probably take the buttercream class again.

I am not actually a fan of fondant myself but it is fun to work with. Not at all as hard as I anticipated. I was so excited that I got to make two cakes that I gave one of them to my neighbor, Carmela. She is a sweet lady who loves to watch foodnetwork, too. She has been having teenager trouble and I feel for her. I was so thrilled that I put a great big smile on her and her husband's face. She really deserves to be happy. I don't see her smile very much anymore.
