We've had many days of rain and gray here in South Florida... I did manage to whip up a cake for an impromptu potluck at work last week. It was a Haitian cake, the recipe given to me by a work friend who told me this is how her mother made it... so, with all ingredients at hand, made the cake which was dense, heavy and delicious. Covered in thick vanilla buttercream frosting... generous amounts of it inside and out. It was a small 8 inch cake and, thinking that would be more than enough for each person to have a small slice, in to work it went. Praised by many who know a Haitian cake, it went fast some of it before lunch was even ready. I did not get a photograph but trust me, it was pretty and simple to look at and delicious to eat. I will try making another and getting the photo up. In the meantime, I am looking forward to the new Martha cupcake book coming out soon and, went online to look at a site, Bakerella. And from there went to CakeArt.com. two really good sites.. I have some orders coming up and need to get in my practice of decorating things and making those dang flowers... love to see them on the cakes tho so will do some. and make some fondant and do some flowers that way as well.... so, summer is coming to Florida, that means rainy weather and possible hurricanes.. have to think about getting some of those yearly supplies and plenty of water ready.... maybe get a cake made should that one hurricane come, we want to have our cake and eat it too!
