Cake anyone?

Well its been a while since I've broken out my cake tools.  I forgot how much fun it is to work with sugar and how much my hand hurts after decorating a two tiered cake in 2 hours.

I love the happy spring colors.  It was a nice energy boost.  I also tried a new recipe that seemed to go over pretty well.  It's Martha Stewart's devils food recipe and as you can see I think people liked it.

Im sad to say the reason I had to make this cake is the retirement of one of the hardest working women I've had the pleasure to have as a coworker.  Usha is moving on to spend more time with her family and split her time between India and the US.  She will be missed.  I do have to say it was a pretty awesome party though.  We had an indian food buffet where I ate way too many simosas, naan, and coconut rice (Usha's speciality).  Good luck, Usha, but thanks for giving me a new international adventure goal.  India here I come.

Cake on!
