yesterday i was nonstop busy...and test-tasting yummy things for a sort of birthday party

3.26.2010



i was baking up a storm...truly.
cakes, cupcakes, breads, etc.
some for a party we had last night,
some just to have on hand
when a sweet tooth beckons
or some serious grain is needed in the tummy.




sprinkles were everywhere.
magic faerie dust really.
as i frosted and sprinkled i was overtaken
by the smell of a spring rain...
what is it about spring rain specifically that is so fresh and clean?
what could be more perfect than
baking while it rains outside?





i tried this cupcake/cake recipe for the first time,
and it worked out quite well.
i used this recipe, except i used less water
{i only used 1/2 cup hot water}.

it all turned out so yummy and perfect.
we are set for the next few days indeed.
