Cake Day

I would not want to be doing anything but staying home with Esther, we have a pretty fun time together. However, I have found that being a stay at home mom leaves most days full of busy work (house cleaning, corralling the baby, trying to read, thinking about cooking a meal and sometimes actually following through, cleaning up after the cats. . . ), but there are few days where I think, ¨Today I really did it all.¨ There are even fewer days when someone comes along and says, ¨Wow, I can´t believe you got dressed and made lunch today while keeping the baby alive all day.¨

I have found a bit of outside entertainment that keeps me on track (ie: I have to clean the house get dressed at least once a week), pays pretty well, and I get praise from people I don´t even know. For a gal who likes to be told ´good job´ at least 100 times a day, it is the perfect arrangement.

What is it? ? ? Making cakes. Well really only one cake a week, but it is the perfect thing.

I make a delicious chocolate layer cake with ganache and a mascarpone filling for this great little pizza place in town. This week I got a second order for a party someone is throwing.

Today I made two, the cakes get a little less lopsided with each week and if I did not make it myself I may say it is the perfect chocolate cake.

    Great photo. I think it looks tasty (disregard my previous comment). Hey, who is throwing a party. I bet American expats would LOVE your cake.

    • Thanks. I know I am no photographer, but diarrhea cake, really? Expats do love the cake and they buy it all the time at the shop. The owner is hoping to make it up to ordering 2 cakes a week. The woman who threw the party was a Spanish woman and she just did not want to do much work so she ordered a bunch of pizzas and a cake. I assume they liked it because I heard nothing back.

    Would you make two cakes at once? Or bring one cake twice a week? You need a cake box girl!
