So…how’s your Friday been so far? Mine’s been great! Pretty much the typical day to day stuff…watered the garden, made a loaf of bread, read a few books to my kid. And, oh yeah, I made a Rainbow Trout Cake! Just a typical day!
I’m pretty happy with how it turned out, but it didn’t completely match the picture that I had in my head. I think it might be a bit more of a shark/dolphin/rainbow trout hybrid. The one thing I can guarantee though is that it will taste delicious. The chocolate cake recipe I used never disappoints!
There have been some unexpected benefits to making cakes for people that I never expected. Every cake request has a story to accompany it, and it’s really interesting to hear some of the requests that are made. I love getting to be a part of the background of a celebration…it never fails to make me smile when the event crew is hollering “the cake lady is here!” upon my arrival to set up the party dessert. And, so much for cakes just being for birthdays! I’ve had requests for a cake to celebrate sobriety, cakes to enter into a raffle for fundraising, cupcakes to say thanks to the staff. It’s really opened my eyes to all the aspects of life to be celebrated…and what better way than with cake! Well…some might say pie, but we can get into that debate another day. Today is for cakes!
