Let me eat cake:
Are you beginning to wonder is this a food blog or a knitting blog? Hmm. Well, I guess I'd just say it's a knitting/food blog. I really did work today. It's just that during my coffee break or lunch hour, I whipped up this cake. The layers are brushed with lemon syrup and filled with whipped cream/cream cheese mixed with a few raspberries and raspberry jam. Then I stabilized some whipped cream with a bit of gelatin and frosted the cake with that. It's very good, I must say. But I think there could be some improvement.
On a knitting note, I received one-fifth of my Amazon order. Being the thrifty person I am, I took the free shipping. Don't ever do that unless you really don't want what you're ordering. It's been over a month. I did get a notice that three of Barbara G. Walker's Treasury of Knitting books are shipping. But the last book is definitely coming by Pony Express. I have a couple skeins of Zephyr just waiting for this. But first I have to knit something besides a shawl.
I was born Brenda Diane, but called Cindy all my life (starting with my mom - just call it a fight with my dad over what to name me) until I became a court reporter and decided I should use my legal name. Even my dad didn't call me the name he won the fight with. He called me DeeDee and CC. Then of course I was called Mom. Kelli's friends called me Mama Brenda/Cindy. Fast forward to blogdom and Mrs. Bear has called me Kate. My Favorite Neighbor out of the blue has decided I'm Rhetta. At this point in my life, I think if somebody calls out a name, I'll just answer! But I've decided if I'm going with Rhetta, Beasley's going with it. Thanks, Tink.
