I Made This!!! - May 2009

So there's been a box of Funfetti cake mix in the pantry for a couple of weeks now and today, with a few hours on my hands I decided I'd bake.

Note to Reader: This baking in my spare time is NOT normal.

So a little back ground is that I got a pampered Sheff Icing gun a few months back along with a couple of round baking pans. The Hub and I have sort of been splitting the duties of cake creation.

This one is one of our first, and all I remember about it was that there were about 4 different icings on it because:

A.) We couldn't agree on one,


B.) We ran out and the store nearest our house didn't have the kind that we started with.

But as the Hub napped on the couch and absorbed the Bolton vs. Wigan game via osmosis and I listened to the announcers going wild, I baked a whole entire Funfetti cake all by myself!

Additional Note to Reader: There's more about what I really think about European soccer announcers coming soon in a future post.

even searched You Tube for an instructional video on icing and learned this "basket weave technique. The icing got a little melted, so it isn't perfect. but it's not bad for a first try.The Hub said that it's almost too pretty to eat!

Till next time,
Bon Voyage!
