Right now in the oven, I have a 1/2 batch of the Kentucky Butter Cake recipe that I’ll be using for the Baby Shower/Moving Away shindig. Duh! I might have forgotten to mention that one of Alex’s co-workers was eager to host it for us. So, shit’s coming along great, and she and I have our work divided. I am making the cake (as I began to mention) and have a design for it an everything. This will be only the second non-traditionally shaped cake that I’ve ever made, and I am both excited & nervous. I made Isa’s 1st birthday cake last April, but it was easy because it was just a fish on its side. I didn’t have much to worry about but cutting out fins and whatnot. This time, however, the cake will be a slightly-opened treasure chest with candy treasure as well as some baby items. The theme is Pirates and Babies.
*phew*…. I can’t wait to see this all come into fruition!!
