My mom taught me
three important things: Don’t waste your time trying to change a man, you can
never have too many shoes, and how to frost a cake. I sway more toward the
domestic damsel in distress side of the Martha Stewart scale, so if I can do
this, you can too. Yes, more of the frosting ended up all over my “Will Cook for Shoes” apron than on the actual cake, but hey, nothing is ever perfect the
first time around. (FYI: I used Pillsbury strawberry cake mix and frosting. I
couldn’t find edible flowers, so I wrapped the flower ends in aluminum foil in the rare
chance that they may contaminate the cake).

      Thanks Debra! There's no shame in storing extra shoes under your bed– that's what I do! ; )
