It Couldn't Be Done

By Edgar Guest

Somebody said that it couldn't be done But he with a chuckle replied That "maybe it couldn't," but he would be one Who wouldn't say so till he'd tried. So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin On his face. If he worried he hid it. He started to sing as he tackled the thing That couldn't be done, and he did it!

Somebody scoffed: "Oh, you'll never do that; At least no one ever has done it;" But he took off his coat and he took off his hat And the first thing we knew he'd begun it. With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin, Without any doubting or quiddit, He started to sing as he tackled the thing That couldn't be done, and he did it.

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done, There are thousands to prophesy failure, There are thousands to point out to you one by one, The dangers that wait to assail you. But just buckle in with a bit of a grin, Just take off your coat and go to it; Just start in to sing as you tackle the thing That "cannot be done," and you'll do it.

Self-professed cake artist and flour child Leslie Vigil is good at what she does. Her edible creations deserve to be photographed and kept in a gallery of delicious pastries. Vigil endeavored to create a new collection called Tapestry Cakes. She used a cool technique in which she used icing as “stitches” to cover cakes with stylized flowers, symmetrical laurel leaf patterns, and little red hearts. The colorful cakes will make you think of Mexican folk dresses. Basically, Vigil has whipped up some deliciously beautiful creations you’re going to appreciate for sure. Bon appétit!

She captioned this one: “Inspired by some of my favorite real life succulents, I created this cement planter filled with ‘black knight’ echeveria, ‘burros tail’ sedum, and ‘red lion’ sempervivum. All in buttercream! Any suggestions for varieties of succulents or cacti I could try? ????????????????”
