So since I last updated I've done a number of things, some of which has been baking. I made a lovely last minute chocolate cake for my sister's best friend and it turned out to be the best cake she ever tasted. Which I don't quite understand since I've made this cake before(Martha Stewart's one bowl chocolate cake) but this time I made my own little variation to it so maybe that's the key. Either way I was pleased by the comments. I also made some peanut butter cupcakes with a peanut butter and chocolate buttercream swirl icing for my Discovery toys party. And for easter I made some golden eggs which I got HERE. If you've never been to her blog before you'll be amazed. I've also been reading her book 'My life from scratch' which is where I first got the recipe. Anyways I'm pretty sure that next time I'm in Vermont I'll be stopping there for a pastry or 5.
Things have been going good for Fionn and I lately. I've been thinking of going back to school to take on a bigger challenge. I'm going to apply to university this time and hopefully get a bachelor degree in International Business. Yes I know it's not baking but I've always wanted to go back and study business at some point in my life and well why not study it now. Plus international business has my love of travel and languages mixed in there so it's win win. But I've got to get in first so I'm not getting ahead of myself here.
So I'm excited by what's possibly to come. And spring is here!! I love spring minus the smell. Well the first signs of spring smell when the snow melts to expose all the garbage and lawn cigars(dog poop). But once everything is thawed and dried and blooming it's wonderful!
