God’s Cake

May 21, 2009

This was sent to me by my wonderful friend Dave.
I think it’s a pretty tasty slice of cake!

God’s cake… This is about the best thing I’ve ever read as an explanation.

We all wonder many times over WHY? Sometimes we wonder, ‘What did I do to deserve this?’ or ‘Why did God have to do this to me?’
Here is a wonderful explanation!

A daughter is telling her Mother how everything is going wrong, she’s failing algebra, her boyfriend broke up with her and her best friend is moving away.

 Meanwhile, her Mother is baking a cake and asks her daughter if she would like a snack, and the daughter says, ‘Absolutely Mom, I love your cake.’ ‘

Here, have some cooking oil,’ her Mother offers.
‘Yuck’ says her daughter.
‘How about a couple raw eggs?’
‘Gross, Mom!’
‘Would you like some flour then? Or maybe baking soda?’
 ‘Mom, those are all yucky!

‘To which the mother replies: ‘Yes, all those things seem bad all by themselves. But when they are put together in the right way, they make a wonderfully delicious cake!

God works the same way. Many times we wonder why He would let us go through such bad and difficult times. But God knows that when He puts these things all in His order, they always work for good!
We just have to trust Him and, eventually, they will all make something wonderful!

 God is crazy about you. He sends you flowers every spring and a sunrise every morning.Whenever you want to talk, He’ll listen. He can live anywhere in the universe, and He chose your heart.

Candy Clay- Edible Fun

May 15, 2009

I’ve been playing with candy clay lately and have had some fun. Candy clay is an edible treat that is made with corn syrup and candy melts. You can mold it similar to how you would fondant.

“Paula Sands Live” is a local TV show that I was a guest on to promote a class I taught on “How to use Candy Clay”. Here are a few items made with candy clay.
