As much as I love to bake, this was not the week to have to create a beautiful cake (let alone two!) for teachers at our school and present them in a fancy manner. We leave tomorrow for a long weekend trip, and I am officially a basket case. Today is going to be one of those days, I can just tell. And of course, it's pouring rain, too.
But, I did make my cakes and deliver them to school. I found this recipe online, which looked pretty and not too terribly complicated.
This is what my cakes looked like:
Not quite as pretty as the one on the website, but the heck with it. (Notice the dog in the background? Just saw that! She invariably sleeps where she can keep one eye on me.)

Now, to return to the regularly scheduled programming of cleaning and packing and writing childcare instructions for my in-laws!
