………Once upon a time there was a rose garden hidden within a deep forest. This was no ordinary rose garden, however. For within the heart of every bloom was nurtured a special seed…the seed of human life. Anytime a sincere heart yearned for a child, she would tiptoe into the garden and choose the flower that spoke to her soul, gently cradling the petals and sniffing its sweet fragrance. The Creator would answer her desire in months of patient waiting and preparation; for when next the loving soul saw the precious rose, it was carrying her greatest hope. Nestled within the velveteen layers slept the object of her heart’s desire. Fragrant like the rose, bearing the Creator’s kiss upon its cheek and awaiting the unconditional love of its Mother. A baby in bloom.
When I was asked to make a cake for a co worker’s baby shower I didn’t realize this was what I was going to create. It was so fulfilling to watch the baby come to life, then the rose, and to see how much everyone enjoyed it. As you can see, they devoured the cake. The baby was spared…
