Well, my chocolate half sheet is out of the way and have started the carrot cake layers for the main cake. They don't seem to be rising as I would like though so I will probably have to do 2 of each size and cut them down to 1 1/2" high rather than just slicing them through the middle as I prefer. During all this rentadaughter is coming over to "help" and called a few minutes ago to see if she can make some oat squares for her boyfriend's lunches (Real Mom doesn't have a stove!). Don't ya just love kids!

Tonight, I'm going to start the dough for the no knead bread. So I guess I'll really be baking tomorrow. Mmmm, fresh bread.

Okay, so I didnt' bake anything today (in fact with the flu and a cold I can't even think of food), but I think from Thursday to yesterday morning I baked enough cake to make up for it! This wasn't as fancy a wedding cake as the one I showed earlier; however, I learned three important lessons while making it. 1) the densness of carrot cake does not easily lend itself to making a 12" x 3" round layer all at once, even when you lower the temp and increase the time. I ended up redoing it as two 1 1/2 layers which had me up late and back working early yesterday to get it cooked, cooled and decorated for 11 am! 2) working with real flowers, while they save on the time to make sugar flowers, provide new challenges like weighing down the edges of the layers (making a perfect scallopped edge not so perfect!). Also, you have to clean and carefully wrap each flower. For the centerpiece I cheated! I cut a hole in the top layer and inserted a small glass with some water in it and inserted the arranged flowers tied with florists tape. 3) Cream cheese frosting is great with carrot cake, but not with hot lights! But I DO love my work! It is always worth it when the bride is happy!
