for mother’s day, i got to make the special dessert for our family.
i wanted to try something new, and it needed to be non-chocolate since
my mom’s not a chocolate person. so i found this recipe for
“lemon ginger cake with raspberry curd filling.” that’s it!
i thought. so yesterday i made the cake and the filling.
this afternoon i assembled the cake and filling and frosted the
cake. oh my. for a while there the cake bore a frightening
resemblance to the cake the fairies in “Sleeping Beauty” make for
Aurora/Rose….before they bust out the magic wands.
yeah… but don’t worry. i didn’t have to use any brooms to
prop it up. once i realized that the frosting was just too warm,
and once i had put the cake and frosting in the fridge for about 45
minutes, all was well. it turned out quite nicely. now i just hope it tastes decent… haha!
i got it yesterday and so far i completely love it! the thing
is smaller than my ipod (in length and height at least – it’s about
twice the width)! and my favorite feature – what really sold me
on it – is that there is practically NO delay when you take the
picture! i feel like i’m using a 35mm, not a digital! so
yes, andrea is very happy.
happy mother’s day to all y’all’s moms!
