After work I went grocery shopping and when I came home I whirled into the kitchen like a madwoman and baked a cake. Spice cake, my favorite! YUM! Who cares if it was for my Swedish mother-in-law and she and the rest of Anders' family don't know what spice cake is and won't give it proper appreciation! And then? I frosted it with my very own homemade vanilla buttercream frosting. Did you know that frosting will last PRACTICALLY FOREVER in the freezer? Yessiree! So good and sweet it makes my teeth ache just writing about it. And even though it had a crack in the top and 2 pieces of the side had fallen off when I took the cake out of the
Hmm...I wonder if I could cover up other defects with frosting? Might be fun to try!
Then I made 2 batches of Rice Krispie Holly Bars which don't count toward my baking total, but they still made me happy even though, amazingly, I didn't eat any! Weird. I wonder if I'm sick or something. Oh wait! I AM sick! Okay, that explains it. Or maybe the eating of the frosting beforehand explains it. Whatever. Anyway, Rice Krispie Holly Bars are a million times better than regular Rice Krispie Marshmallow treats because they involve green food coloring and cinnamon red hots. I'm a firm believer in the philosophy that there is nothing that can't be improved by the application of a few cinnamon redhots...or frosting for that matter. Or both! Whoa, tiger!
THEN! As if that wasn't enough, I made up a double batch of sugar cookie dough to bake today. Because my son's puppybrown pleading eyes are irresistable. *bat bat* go those eyelashes, and I am defeated. Must make cookies! COOOOOKIIIIIEEEEE! *cookie monster noises*
Today is Anders' mom's birthday and we're spending the evening with his family at his sister's. But first I'm working a half day and then I'm baking cookies. It is raining and raining and raining, and where is all the damn snow we were promised? Thankfully, ozswede has provided a possible solution to the no snow situation with Grow Snow. I've ordered 42 tons to be shipped to Flyinge directly. It says just add water so that's no problem considering all the STUPID RAIN.
Maybe I could just coat everything with vanilla buttercream frosting. Then it would LOOK like winter and it would TASTE good, too!
