To answer some of you who asked in my last post on Salmon Teriyaki, yes, I am still using the DSLR. :) I've been cooking and baking A LOT, just so that I can photograph my food. Isn't it silly? But hey, might as well get busy while the camera is still in my possession.
I am also taking into consideration all your clever suggestions to report loss of the camera, hide it and just keep it. LOL!
My older son - the alpha male - turns 5 today. This was the cake I baked for his class yesterday - a remake of Nigella's Old Fashioned Chocolate Cake. I know it looks feminine (I wanted to use up the remainder of the sugared daisies), but I made up for it by getting him a very macho-looking set of Hot Wheels cars and a rocket ship for his birthday presents!
If you watch Nigella make her cake here, you will notice that I decorated my cake quite like hers. Note however, that I did not use her frosting recipe.
I know the cake was a hit because I saw many of his classmates go back for seconds and thirds. Chocolate is always foolproof with kids. :) Oh, and the teachers and principal needn't have stopped me after school to tell me how much they loved the cake ... but I am grateful they did. All the positive feedback truly made my day.
I am abruptly ending this post here because we're all going out to somewhere nice for lunch now. :) After eating, I just want a nap. LOL. It has been a very long and trying week. Thank goodness the weekend is here. Hope you'll all take the time to relax and recharge too!
I had so much fun photographing this cake ... picking out which sugared flower I wanted to focus on, and which I wanted to blur. :) I love playing with the DSLR.
Happy birthday, my dear son! You've brought so much happiness into my life, and I can only hope to do the same for you.
PS: The countdown ends today ... you can finally unwrap all your presents! :)
