Having My Cake And Eating It Too
I haven’t forgotten about The Craving Chronicles! I’ve just been super busy over the last two weeks and haven’t had much time for baking and photography.
If you’ve been following along on Twitter, you know I made a nice coconut layer cake to celebrate my mom’s birthday and Mother’s Day this past week. Unfortunately I don’t have any photos or even a recipe to share! I put the cake together at her house and we were so busy celebrating that I didn’t get around to photographing it. I’ll be honest, it wasn’t that pretty anyway. I’ve only iced 2 or 3 cakes in my life so I’m not very good at it! The cake did taste good, but it wasn’t wow. I used a doctored up boxed cake mix (per Mom’s request) and paired it with a cream cheese buttercream frosting. Both were good on their own, but combined, I felt the cream cheese overpowered the coconut flavor. I’ll try something different next time.
Anyway, I’ve got a few things in the works this week, now that I should have more free time. In the mean time, tell me, what do you plan on making for Memorial Day weekend? Or if you’re not doing anything special for Memorial Day weekend, have you seen any recipes lately that you’re just DYING to make? Don’t keep them from me!
