Fifth of July and Five Times Better

Well, it is Wednesday and I feel much better. The cake was finished. It was 8 layer high. It actually made it to the destination~intact!

Delivered, set up, and left as I had another appointment. Later, resports indicated that the cake
was very well received.

Am pleased.

Will do another.

But man... I am going to invest in more cake dummies. There is a difference between a baker and a decorator. I can bake a cake... but to decorate an 8 layer cake? ... That takes a skill I still need to develop~ If I want the results to look professional.

July 3rd and I'm Fried like a Firecracker

I'm exhausted.

I have made enough cake to make me sick. The cakes themselves turned out very well.
Fluffy, firm enough to frost, held their shape at 3" inches tall.

Note to self: Do not attempt cakes when having a discussion with Grandfather. Murphy's law
will dictate a days delay, unfocused mind, and sudden urge to cry.

I'll make the ganache in the morning. I'm going to bed now. It is 2:00am.

I shouldn't have tried to make the cheesecake, and cannoli this evening in addition to the cakes.

My energy is diminished considerably.

Falling asleep as I type.
