Hot, Hot, Hot

Monday, August 6, 2012



It has been sweet as bees knees weather-wise here in Portland, that is until the day I had to make a wedding cake with buttercream frosting. This day, it was 102 degrees. I have no air conditioning, well, because it is Portland and most of the year it is freezing and raining. So piece by piece, bit by bit, I made this lovely cake for a very lovely girl and her new husband. It only melted a little sitting out in the hot sun. Cake decorating is like a three dimensional painting, color, composition, layering...except of course when it is 102 degrees outside, then it is just super duper challenging.

Wow, that is some cake! You are multi-talented!

And thanks for the great feedback for my brother's restaurant! We just missed you by a day- we went up Sunday for lunch and heard about the coconut pie that we missed!
