Open for business!
I've officially done a batch of cookies and 2 cakes.
My oven, be it small, bakes evenly and wonderfully. I still need to get it level (and of course keep forgetting to bring my level home from my parents). I can only fit three 8 inch rounds in there, which will prove interesting for the wedding cake I have in two weeks, but it will have to work. While I can bring a second oven into this house, it would be tricky and involve wiring and inspections, so I'm going to do my best to make it work with what I've got.
I have a bigger cake this weekend which will be the true test. This will be a fancy embroidered shirt. I know there is a real word for it, but I only know it as a Ukrainian Dance Costume. Paul and Amy (of my cute Gruffalo cake)'s mother makes these shirts, so Paul thought it was a very fitting cake for her. It will be a challenge making the embroidery aspect, but as always, I'm looking forward to the challenge.
I think I can do this. Actually, I kinda have to since I was featured over on Samantha Bauer Photography the other day...
