Cake Intermission

Oops, I got my Facebook Migrants out of order. Blast! Anyway, here was Christmas 2009 and New Years 2009/2010. Two years ago already! Dang. Anyway….drool commencing in 3…2….


Christmas and New Years Eve.

Let it snow…or not. I finally got to make these delightful things for Christmas.

Megan, Anna, and I had been talking about and drooling over them for months. Little things like opera performances, Thanksgiving, travels to and from Champaign-Urbana, Nativity fasting and life upheaval prevented our making and consumption.

Chocolate Lava Cakes.  Mmmmm…God Bless The Pioneer Woman!

Thankfully, Anna captured the crowning moment on video. (Of which I’m unable to find at this moment…..)

Along with these delectable morsels, I made some cheesy potatoes and our bunch feasted on goose with other sides and trimmings.

A frenzy of work and trying to get my car back from the shop (post-ditch exploration) ensued in the following days. I also sang for Wednesday Vespers and screwed up royally. Tone 2 always humbles me. Who am I kidding? Every Byzantine tone humbles me!!! I apparently needed a lot of humility that night. Made me all the more thankful for grace and mercy.

Then there was New Year 2010. Three words: Bacon Wrapped Waterchestnuts.

There was one and only one downside to my offering: they were the impetus for a random middle-aged man at the gathering to give me the worst dating advice known to the human race. During one 20-30 minute rant and randomly during the following two hours, he asserted that I should have a string of one-night stands, make the guy breakfast if I like him and que cera, cera.

I thought it was “The way to a man’s heart….” NOT “The way to get a fool’s advice….”

In the middle of the bad advice chaos and grazing, the kitty snuggled with me for a long while.

I miss having a fur-ball around.

The weekend after New Years Day continued to be a flurry of activity as I had another cake order and was scheduled at work for one long shift and one very inconvenient shift. Which is why I was compelled to do this as a break in baking:

Stay tuned for: Laura’s first attempt at a “cute” cake.
