This week is just trucking along! How is it that its already Thursday?!! As you can see I spent the first part of my last weekend completing a Thomas the Tank Engine Cake for my friend Peter’s son Jasper. Thomas the Tank Engine was a big part of my childhood as my kid brother was obsessed with Thomas and trains, this of course was when Ringo Star played Mr. Conductor. Then it was George Carlin and these days I don’t even know who holds the magic whistle. The rest of my weekend was spent ringing in an early St. Patty’s day upstate with the Master and Mistress of Cheesecake Machismo…Stout Chocolate Cheesecake should be a sin to eat.
And somewhere between Saturday and day light savings its suddenly Thursday and I haven’t posted a thing. So here is what you can look forward to:
Friday: Carrot Cake-– the most to-die for recipe I’ve got thanks to my friend Rachel who’s now celebrating that last year of her 20’s just this past Ides of March.
Saturday Evening look for a Brunch recipe for Banana Pecan Belgian Waffles
And Next Week: Tiramsu Pops— cause lets face it what Starbucks debuted last week in the way of petit confections–as far as tiramsu goes was just Yucky!!
An old favorite Cupcake Cones in honor of my favorite girl Aela and her upcoming 7th Birthday
And by the end of the week I’ll have three more additions in galleries by way of spring inspired cakes!!!
One more thing before I run back into the kitchen and then go to bed. To my regular and some times readers a question for you: Are you interested in taking a cake decorating class with yours truly? Let me know! I’ve taken a leave from the rather rigorous schedule of teaching the Wilton Method while I adjust to my new gig in the middle of the city. I’ve still got a hankering to make connections with cake enthusiasts and impart some skills with my own technique. Give me a shout if your interested (TheCakeEccentric@gmail.com). I’m located in the Metropolitan area, but am accessible in the Capital region as well so if you are looking to not just read up on the subject but do some decorating too give me a shout or pass this on to your friends. I love teaching in small groups of 8-10 or more and am hoping to organize some regular classes in basic and advanced techinques.
