There was plenty of success in the kitchen- I finished the manuscript of 101 Gourmet Cakes book. It was full of some great taste testing, and lots of butter, cocoa, four and sugar. If I had to choose my favorite cake recipe today, I’d pick the Coconut Cream cake. Or maybe the Chocolate Covered Strawberry cake (picture above). It’s a tough choice.
This little guy was tired all the time. And I was frequently told he smelled like powdered sugar. I’ll take that as a compliment. 🙂
This cake was a show stopper! Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake. Need I say more?
I had a blast on Studio 5– making this great Chocolate Mousse Pie. Then went home and made some birthday cakes for baby Benson. It’s been a year already.
His animal print Swiss Rolls turned out so perfectly, I added them to the cake manuscript last minute. I couldn’t help but include them.
And finally, my baby is one. It’s been such an amazing year- less sleep, more laughs, more hugs, more snuggles… Oh, how he fit right into our family… smelling like sugar and all.
It was a great January. How about you?
