Tap...tap....is this thing on?
Hello! I am still alive and kicking! Always tired and sleepy but kicking! Life with a baby (now toddler) is crazy crazy crazy. Yes, I cook because I have to eat but by the time I'm done cooking the last thing I want to do is take pictures of the food and blog about i! That's OK though, I've come to terms with it.
I have been making a few cakes in the past couple of weeks. My son turned one on the 18th so I made a smash cake for that day and then made a cake for the party today. I'm also taking a class so I had to make a cake for that and have one more to go.
The two cakes for my son were scratch cakes. The smash cake was an eggless chocolate cake with mint flavored buttercream. The party cake (the monkey) was a buttercake with pina colada filling and pina colada flavored buttercream. I made the fondant for the class cake because I didn't have time to buy any and I refuse to use Wilton fondant, it tastes like toxic waste.
The cakes are not perfect but they don't have to perfect to be beautiful :D
