#18~I'm castless!!!

My cast was removed yesterday! Now for some self-directed physio. The image of my right hand (lower photo) shows what I'm aiming for. The left hand shows what I'm able to do today.
Clearly, I have alot of work ahead of me!

Did everyone have a fun Cinco de Mayo? I made chicken enchiladas and key lime cupcakes with coconut swiss meringue buttercream~so, so yummy. Links to recipes will be on my baking blog:
