We made this small, 9″ chocolate cake for a friend last night and decided to leave most of the surface undecorated except for a shell border at the base. We really liked how smooth the cake looked. This morning I snipped a few purple johnny jump-ups (which are edible by the way) from our balcony for simple adornment. Mark’s been telling me that I’ve been eating a lot of buttercream lately. Um, thanks, Captain Obvious, but what else are we going to do with leftover buttercream?
Thanks for all your comments to the last post. I feel better today (actually, I don’t really feel like such a great mom today, but that’s a whole ‘nother long post). I think part of my problem, and one that I’ve always struggled with, is that I’m super goal oriented and I’m a bit scattered in my interests. For some reason I have a strong need to do everything, and so I don’t ever focus on just one thing, and what often ends up happening is that I don’t get anything done. Mark’s the opposite of me. He can be quite content with the situation on hand, whereas I start pacing around looking for the next challenge. I suppose that’s why it works for the most part. I would probably KILL another me!
