yes, i can feel it, i can see it, i can hear it, but most of all, i can smell it; spring's sprung!
we made an equinox carrot cake - equinox and easter blends into each other in our house. i wanted to copy a piece of art cake i've made before, but was doomed before i started. i chose an entirely different recipe, and chose youghurt over cream frosting. in addition, i had little helper with me in the kitchen, and i don't have the energy to argue over aesthetics with her. besides, that would be bad parenting. not to forget that i'd risk getting my throat slit.
i managed to get a photo of it before we made it look as if someone dropped a bucket of mint green paint on it. and no, that's not someone's bite marks; it was supposed to be a staircase but the cake wasn't big enough for more than one step.
we made flowers from organic marzipan and food colouring to decorate with, and added some chocolate/almond eggs. some pussy willows were happy to act as camouflage for the photo shoot.
and here's the cake i was trying to copy. i can see that i had more energy and patience back then. and my daughter was still a baby with no access to knives or other sharp objects.
