You thought I had fallen off the face of the earth, didn’t you?
Well the good news is that I did not fall off the face of the earth because the earth is round. Kinda like my bottom half.
It’s that time of year again, cake time! I’m once again preparing for the sugar arts show in Austin and I am busy! busy.. busy.. busy… I am 75% of the way done with my first cake and have at least two more to go. I might throw one more in there when I get closer to the show. Who knows. I don’t.
I always have these perfect cakes in my mind, planned and ready to be made. However I always change my mind on the design at the last minute and come up with something totally different. I don’t try to do funny kitchsy cakes because I can do that anytime. I love the older more formal styles that you don’t see that much anymore and so I challenge myself to learn those techniques for the show. They say you shouldn’t use new techniques on a show cake but apparently they don’t know me.
Princess Newbie has also been up a lot the past few nights. She has a doctor’s appointment in the morning so we can get her ears checked for an ear infection. Princess Goofy also has a doctor’s appointment because she keeps telling us that her ears are talking to her. The other day I asked her what her ears say to her and she replied, “iiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnggggggg.” Then I asked what it sounded like and she told me it sounded like a mommy, not like a daddy. Since I speak Princess Goofy’s natural language of Goof Troop-ology, I will interpret. Basically her ears are making high pitched ringing noises. We’re going to discuss this with the doctor in the morning.
Since I got around 3 hours of sleep last night, please ignore all spelling mistakes. I could not even find spell check right now if I wanted too. As soon as the Super Bowl is over and His Royal Highness stops hooting and hollering like a barn owl, I am going to bed.
If you have any snazzy cake ideas, post a comment below! If you just want to say hi, post a comment. If you want a million dollars, post a comment. Not saying I can provide that money, just saying let me know. haha. I’m delirious from sleep deprivation.
Here’s the Post that I wrote last year showing the cakes from the Sugar Arts Show: Cake Show 2009
