I have been spending the majority of my summer working on teaching job applications and traveling about the state of Minnesota for interviews, so there hasn't been much time or energy to bake. Ironic too, that we're having one of the coolest summers on record. I've had the air conditioning on for about a total of 6 days this year. It's the perfect time to have the oven on.
Anyway, I plan to work on some entries this weekend. I have some baking to do for my cousin's wedding shower, so I will be working on some goodies by Friday.
I did bake my mom's birthday cake this month. She requested all chocolate. I didn't have buttermilk on hand, so I couldn't make my favorite, Cocoa Fudge Cake. I made my next chocolate favorite, Devil's Food Cake. I frosted it with French Silk Frosting. Chocoholics around the world rejoiced.
