*marching right along*
then on sunday, i baked a mardi gras cake for another friend's business party.i will not call it a king cake, since it wasn't actually one, just a bundt cake with the pretty sugar. i had to make the purple sugar since i only had the yellow and green. i had never actually made my own colored sugar before, in fact, had never even thought about making it before. but i was at a blog recently where she suggested you could actually do that and i was like "hey, make my own colored sugar? what a brilliant concept! my life as i know it, will never be the same!" so after my first attempt using regular food color-which made more of a grayish purple (ew!), i tried my gel food color, which actually had a purple. that one made a very purty shade of purple-yay!! that cake was yummy too.
so now we are coming up on st. patrick's day, the 17th and mine and bilbo's wedding anniversary, the 18th. if you have been reading this blog for a year now, then you already know of this family's fondness for corned beef and cabbage.
the traditional dinner will once again be served but we will have some dinner guests who have never had it before. (we're secretly hoping they don't like it, cuz then it's MORE FOR US!!) and i have a dessert planned that i'm hoping will top last year's rainbow cake. it is my own amazing creation so you know ya wanna see it!! i will be sure to take lots of pictures and bore all of you with them here. stay tuned folks...
