This is my favoritest month of the year, and it’s going too fast! It’s so hard sometimes to take in these beautiful fall days when so much of my time is spent at work or on the road.
I did manage to get some baking in for the first time in MONTHS. But it wasn’t the fun, fall baking, that I’ve been itching to create. Nope. It was “I need 48 cupcakes and a 2 layer cake by Friday” kind of baking.
Yeah… somebody spilled the beans at work that I’m settled in my new house, and it does indeed have a working oven.
What was I thinking?!
And as usual, I’m too nice (or is it too dumb?) to say no.
So…. I spent my off day baking this
I shouldn’t complain. It was kinda nice to dust off my kitchen aide mixer and heat up the oven for something other than pizza. But my kitchen is quite a bit smaller than my last one and not conducive to huge amounts of baking.
Before the day was over, I’d knocked over a cup filled with 4 beaten eggs on to a kitchen rug, and soon after, knocked over a bowl of powdered sugar. If you’ve never before done that, DON’T. Neither one is easy to clean up. I threw the rug in the wash, and I’m sure I’ll be cleaning up powdered sugar for days to come.
Out of the three types of cakes, only one was a major fail, and needed a do-over. 1 outa 3 ain’t bad.
But then I went and left them all at home.
Aye, aye, aye…. I am NOT. EVER. SAYING YES. AGAIN.
I mean it this time.
