I fully understand the impulse to make a half egg cake. A whole egg would just roll right off the plate!
It's almost time for one of my favorite holidays, St. Patrick's Day! I'm not concerned with my Irish heritage or collecting kisses or wearing green (though I do look very nice in green). No, I'm excited about my good friend Matt's corned beef. he cures a crapload of brisket and cooks it all day, then pairs it with his amazing home made sauerkraut and mashed potatoes and soda bread and Irish cheddar and dark beer and ohhhhhhh... I better get to the gym, I'm fixing to pack on a few pounds.
Kate and Wills had a seriously fantastic decorator for their epic royal wedding cake. It's fruitcake which I don't really understand, as fruitcake is just not tasty. But it is incredibly gorgeous and gigantic: 8 tiers of different flavored fruitcakes, each with a different decorating scheme. I'm mad impressed.
I was never good at solving puzzles like the Rubix Cube. Lord knows I tried and tried. I just didn't have the patience. Imagine if you could bake a cake with swiveling joints in it! When I get fed up I can just eat it and never think of it again!
