Baked a birthday cake for Ken today. We are going to be away on his actual birthday so we celebrated today.

Since we don't have raspberries yet, his torte will have to wait. We just slapped together a devils food cake, cut it in half and slathered it with jam and whipped cream, topped it with more whipped cream and strawberries. It was yummers.

Made blueberry muffins this morning but I forgot to put in the lemon zest. I realize now that it's a big addition to the outcome. Oh well.

Also have more double decker brownies in the oven for a reception tonight.

I've been attacked by my zucchini plants -- sooooo I am baking four loaves of zucchini bread and a baked zucchini frittata today. It looks like I will be doing my "zucchini thing" for a while. Luckily, the bread and frittata freeze well.

Today I am going to bake a two layer round cake for DH. As you may be able to tell by my avatar, we are Celtics fans so I and going to make a green and white swirl cake with green frosting on the inside layer and white on the outside. I am on vacation this week and we don't have the money to travel so I have been doing a lot of baking
