I made a cake this weekend! Specifically, this kind. Specifically for this guy:
It was his birthday this last Thursday. And he needed a cake.
I am proud of myself for baking a cake from scratch and not from a box. It wasn’t as good as when my friend Laura made it, but it was still pretty good. The birthday boy liked it, which was most important. And cake for lunch can never be bad anyway.
This past week was terrible, hence the no posts. This weekend was fantastic. Friday night – worked late and then went to the UWS for dinner with my cousin, her boyfriend, and her dad (my uncle). Family time always a good time.
Saturday – gym time and grocery store time and then I baked an awesome cake! After the cake came out (btw the batter was amazing), I went back to my cousin’s for her housewarming party. Talked to lots of people, ate lots of cheese.
And then today – walked the Brooklyn Bridge, hung out at Brooklyn Bridge Park and then walked the Brooklyn Heights Promenade (lots of Brooklyn!) followed by actually eating some cake and then later on drinks and dinner at The Clover Club.
Have I mentioned lately that I love Brooklyn? And chocolate cake. And other things, too.
Here’s to a better week!
