Have your cake and eat it too!

I'm a doer.


I like doing things for other people.

Its just in my nature. 

Unfortunately sometimes I get busy doing and agree to do to much.

Case and point: This weekend.

Gawain's coworker was taking donations for an auction this weekend.  I agreed to bake a cake for it.  Its an auction right?  It has to be fancy! (um that was my stipulation, not the coworkers).



Yes, you are correct!  I did in fact make a triple layer keylime coconut cake with key lime frosting in between the layers and swiss meringue buttercream frosting on the outside with sprinkled toasted coconut  and a key lime on top. (yes those are the key limes I got from Lee's Market)



Yummy right?



We were so sad to see that go out the door.  We couldn't really eat it anyway with our competition going on.

Froggy's best friend was also having his birthday this weekend.  His mommy asked if I could make the cake, to which I promptly agreed and also offered to make cupcakes for.



Again, a doer.  



All of this wouldn't have been such a big deal if they weren't all needed on the same day (Saturday) and if I didn't have some weird ear infection/cold/sinus infection with which I was feeling more like dying over and not so much like baking.

As you can see it turned out ok in the end.

(I guess I actually just really like baking when it comes down to it, and since we can't have any good stuff with this competition, I haven't been able to bake as much as I'd like)


Thank you for my cake, but seriously, do I have to wear this stupid hat!?!?!?
