leftover cake

April 18, 2009 |  Category:   baked goods + desserts


Everyone needs to have leftover birthday cake in the house at all times. Mark tried a cream cheese buttercream frosting for the first time. The flavor was great, but a bit hard to pipe, so it needs a bit of work, but it sure is tasty. Did everyone have a great Saturday? It was like summer here in NY! Mark was at the Flea, but I was with the girls all day, who spent several hours outside digging in the dirt with sticks and pushing ants around. When Mark got home, we took a little family walk at sundown, something we’d like to do every evening in nice weather.

Mark told me that there were quite a few twitter followers who wondered where I was. Although I would have loved to have been there, the Flea is all Mark’s. Remember the last time I brought the kids to the flea? I vowed never to do it again.

    Happy Birthday! Today was our son’s birthday, so we have leftover cake, too. Ours is an apple bundt cake, though, so no icing. Unless you could a half-pint of heavy cream.

    It was 74 and sunny here, and my sense from the garden blogs is that people everywhere were stretching out in the sun, wishing winter long gone.

    The weather in Oly was perfect. Spent the afternoon in the woods and got some nice pictures…some are on flickr. Isn’t it great to finally get good outdoors weather?!

    Passed by your booth, but a woman was there instead of Mark. He must have been taking a break. The flea was fabulous, much better and for some reason I swear, more affordable vintage than last year when I visited, which was in August. I will be back many more times this year, sorry I missed Mark this time, hope it was a good day for you!

    Happy BIrthday! And yes, no home should be without cake, though mine often is and my waistline thanks me 🙂
    Loving the sunny weather here too…we try to take a family walk each day too, such a nice way to spend time with your kids…
