This is my excuse for a birthday cake for my brother.
At least I used a decorative plate.
As it is nothing to brag about, lets talk about something else. I went to a meeting of the San Diego Cake Club this month. I learned that the San Diego County Fair has a cake decorating competition…among every other competition that you can think of. Which, never having attended a County Fair (at least, that I can remember, which isn’t really saying much–I have recently learned that I remember very little), I found this very cool! I did not sign up for the cake decorating, but I am definitely considering entering one or some of the One day entries, which requires no advance sign-up. Not to mention that entering a competition is pretty scary for having no idea what I am doing.
Side note–I’m watching an episode of bones, and Booth and Bones are sitting on a bench on the mall–in the distance you can see the Lincoln Memorial. I think they are using a green screen.
The hubs is in New Orleans this weekend. I told him it would be a sin to not have a beignet while he is there. I’m sure he won’t be bringing me one, so we’ll just feast our eyes on a picture I found on the internet. Thank you, Carmen.
