It's just about birthday bonanza time in this house. Eleni will be 3 on the 20th, Nicolas 9 on the 22nd and Juliana 15 (ack) on the 27th! Count'em! Three birthdays in one week! (I know, I know...something special about the month of March) It is much better than the 3 broken arms in one year I was whining about. But golly there are cakes to make.
And because I was so completely plushed at Christmas, it's time to do my part and mix, baby. That mango mixer has been waiting for me. But I wasn't ready. Until now. I have something new to wear for the big cake-a-thon. As I sew, sketch, measure and plan through my pattern prototypes, I decided to cook one up that would compliment my new partner in the kitchen. I'm not getting all dressed up for a store bought cake mix either,...oh no. That would be like taking your brother to the prom (love you George). I shall bake from scratch, my darlings.
Now when I hear Jeff pull into the driveway in the evenings, I won't dash to change out of my pajamas, I'll just dab flour on the nose and tie this one on.
Stay tuned to the sweetest place on earth for the cake chronicles........
