For those of you who haven’t noticed, it is freezing here – literally!  It has been extremely cold for the last few days and will be the rest of the week.  So, what does this have to do with cakes?  I was working on a fondant cake tonight and my kitchen got too hot so I opened a window.  It was 20 degrees outside and I had a window open!  My husband was huddled under a blanket on the sofa while I worked.

The first cake is for my Bunco group tomorrow night.  It is a triple chocolate cake.  Hope everyone enjoys it.

Then, my second cake was for a birthday.  The Birthday Lady enjoys traveling.  I kept thinking about the Dr Seuss book “Oh, the places you’ll go”  but I just  couldn’t make a Dr Seuss cake for an adult.   Here’s my grown up version. 

You can’t see all of the writing around the cake but I bet you can fill in the blanks.

Texas or Bust!

What do you do when your best friends are moving to Texas?  Well, you bake a cake and throw a party of course!  My best friends received a wonderful opportunity to move to Texas via a job promotion.  It was a tough decision because all of their family is here – parents, siblings and a daughter.  I’m really happy for them, it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity and the timing just seemed perfect for them.  But, I must admit that I am guilty of being selfish, too.  I don’t want them to leave me!

So here it is – the packing box!  Three-layer 9×13 cake – chocolate, orange and vanilla with vanilla buttercream icing.
