Today we are 1/52.14 of a way through 2009! Decimals in a fraction- already breaking rules right and left!
So I mentioned previously that Jazz got me the Wilton Cake Decorating set for Christmas that I was lusting after so lustily. This little blue box contains a bunch of neat tools to frost/decorate/fondant cakes, cookies and all kinds of baking masterpieces. Also, I LOVE IT.
This will keep me entertained for hours during the long and dark season of Nascar that begins again this February. (Tangent. Is there any time of year that all the sports teams close down and pay homage to wives? The answer is nay. Never a break, always some game going on somewhere.) I unpacked it all on New Year’s Eve to make a fancy holiday treat for our first countdown together. You should know that I have no idea what I am doing and I made the most ginormous mess in the kitchen. Powdered sugar everywhere. Sticky floor. Frosting on the oven handle. It was awesome.
This was the outcome of my strenuous efforts:
I’m not going to lie. They were delicious. I should also be honest and tell you that only the front side of each cake was decorated with puffs because I didn’t double the frosting like I was instructed to do. Overall, I was very proud of what I had created, even if one of them did resemble the Tower of Pisa just a little bit.
It was really fun to use my new gift- and even more fun to pour a glass of cold milk, grab a fork, and dig in. I think we have started a new New Year’s tradition for the Sorensen Family.
