I’m home alone. My husband is in Washington D.C. until the 29th.
And you know what? He took the camera.
So you are stuck with cell phone pictures in the meantime. Forgive me.
But I do want to share the cake I made for a co-worker’s baby shower tonight.
I used Joy the Baker’s Chocolate Cake recipe (very good, very dark- but next time I will use parchment paper in my cake pans, as it stuck even with flour spray), and Brown Eyed Baker’s Peanut Butter Frosting (I could have been eating this with a spoon), because even though I had enough fondant to cover the cake, I am totally unwilling to sacrifice taste for beauty.
I’m fairly happy with how it turned out. The baby’s face is homemade fondant (tutorial forthcoming). The chocolate frosting is just more leftover wedding reception melting chocolate. We will never run out of milk chocolate here at the Flynn house. I drew on her eyes with an edible marker and the pacifier is real.
