Did I mention that I was making that birthday cake from scratch? It came out pretty nicely.
(The spouse is a fool for marzipan, so the filling for one layer was marzipan. The cake itself also has almond extract in it.)
The satay was fine, too, but heavens what an unholy mess. I just need a firehose to clean out the kitchen after all that.
But everyone was happy, which was the objective. I'm satisfied if I can make people happy.
Go listen to some good music: "Mamma Mia" from the album ABBA by ABBA. Tomorrow: in-laws. *sigh*
