Oh well, it tasted pretty good. Not dry at all. I tried a new recipe for Classic French White cake. The batter was fantastic! When it came out of the oven it smelled heavenly. And then I had to go and ruin it all by attempting poorly to frost it. It's been more than 20 years since I've taken a cake decorating class and I think it is time that I do that...especially since I'll probably be making Mari's cakes as she grows up. Otherwise, I better start salting money away for those delicious Sprinkles cupcakes! I just hope my cake doesn't end up on this site.For those of you interested, this is the look I WAS going for. Ho hum...I guess cake decorating is NOT my forte. Primo, can you help me out???

Here is my poor attempt at creating a beautiful ginormous cupcake for my friend's birthday today at work. I so wanted it to be fully of whimsy and fun. I struggled making it the proper shade of green, so I gave up and opted for turquoise. BAD IDEA! I threw my arms up and said whatever. I cleared out my red food coloring in the icing cup and voila: purple gray. In real life, though, it's actually blueberry purple (hence the blueberries on the bottom to off-set the the color imbalance.
