What a way to start a Monday huh? This was me one year after the "Mimi" one.
But, both years, I took home $50 for "most colorful costume" ..so yeah, I was laughing all the way to the bank..............(or in my case, the nearest store..)
This year, I am taking a Cake decorating class - not for Halloween, silly, just for fun.
Yep..art you can eat!
I know many of you must be thinking that to cook is an art....and I've made my share of pretty..uh..........edible meatloaves. But pretty, not so much...
Seriously, how many different, no less artful ways can you layer the noddles in a lasagna??
So for the next 4 weeks, my friend Heather and I are taking Cake Decorating 101 at a local craft store - that's right, a craft store, not a Culinary school....
We'll make beautiful flowers, learn how to cut that cake so the surface is smooth and ready for the frosting.
And frosting! We are going to learn how to make that as well. We'll make borders, Sweet Peas, leaves and stems. We'll make rainbows and clowns and learn to write beautifully of food.
Try that on your next lasagna..................
That means, for the next four weeks, Randy will have to eat cake. Make that Randy and I. Oh poor pitiful me...but wait, maybe I'll feel sad about actually cutting into and eating all that beauty...Seriously, have we met??
So stay tuned. I will be taking photos of our efforts... and our beautiful cakes :-)
Have a GREAT Monday and laugh just a little....(or a lot)
Oh yeah, PS - Way to go Red Sox and the series. (Had to say that. I was rooting for the Rockies. Like what's more picturesque...the Rocky Mountains or........socks....
