tonight i got to celebrate a dear friend, and stretched myself to try something i’ve never done:
without a box. without duncan, martha, or betty by my side. it was an exhilarating experience complete with homemade icing in all of its powdered sugar goodness.
i’ll spare you pictures of the 900 bowls, spoons, and spatulas it took me to get the job done, but i’m pretty pleased with the result:
and i think libby was too :)
if you have friends and they have birthdays, may i recommend this delicious cake? the recipe calls for two layers of hummingbird wonderment, but i was equal parts scared to layer and controlling our portions. enjoy!
