I am not exactly what you would consider lucky.  Prior to this week I had won exactly 2 things in my life.  In grade 2, I won a cake in the Cake Walk at Family Fun Night.  I remember clearly how excited I was, it was pink and frothy and full of sugar.  Now you wouldn't normally think that this would be such a momentous occasion that I would remember it so vividly so many years later.  However, in the SisterUgly childhood home sugar was not something that was readily available.  Our parents didn't think that children should eat sugar (they're right, but we sure didn't agree then!).  Treats for us were homemade granola and bran muffins (woohoo!).  So winning a sugary, frothy, pink cake was momentous when you are surrounded by granola and bran.  Shortly after that big win, at the end of the school year in grade 3 my name was drawn as the incredibly lucky winner of the classroom chameleon.  I was so excited when I brought that chameleon home - a lizard that changed colour? How cool is that??!.  It died 3 days later.  It was the first time I had ever heard the word rigamortis.

Fast forward to this week when I was informed that I had won a pair of Sorel boots!  This is way better than a pink cake or a chameleon!  So how did I win them?  My (and Sister Ugly's) biggest guilty pleasure involves watching the Bachelor/Bachelorette shows.  I know they are cheesy and mostly scripted but I don't care! I still love watching them - Bachelor, Bachelorette, Bachelor Pad, Bachelor Canada, I watch them all.  My favourite so far was the Bachelorette season that was filmed in Vancouver with Jillian Harris.  I loved all the Vancouver scenes and I loved her.  In her real life she is an interior designer with a website which I read regularly.  Over the Christmas season she had a 12 days of Christmas giveaway and that is how I won the boots.  I also just found out that she is going to be hosting another one of my and B's favourite shows - Love it or List it.  Set it up on your PVR, you will love it too.

So, I have a new pair of boots on the way and now I am just hoping it snows again soon so I can wear them!

After baking a cake the next step is it top decoration which make it more prettier and people admire you. Unfortunately majority of people don't have decorating cake decorating skills due to which they are unable to get perfect design of cakes for their birthday. Cake shared by you is really amazing.
