The City of AUSTIN TX has been SHUT DOWN by a little Ice...

and freezing conditions that my MN Friends would wear a hoody in.


Even UT has shut down for the day, and all the Public Schools.


Snow Day, wish I had a job to stay home from...

Well, I have plenty to do today regardless, and it will be nice to have the oven on
all day, for once!

It's just a little strange to me that LJ seems to be sliding around on ice today too...
Must be a Meme!


Right, back to cooking.


This is the cake I am making:

But with GOOD Valhrona cocoa powder, sour German cherries, walnuts
and 61% Valhrona chocolate in the icing...

I didn't want it to be HUGE, so I am only doing two layers,
which gave me a half dozen "practice run" cupcakes to bake first...
as I have never made this particular cake before...

They just came out of the oven.

I Rule.

::licks fingers::

Cakes are cooling....

They came out DIVINE!
And the icing is made...

Running to TARGET now (next door, no biggie)
because I just realised my stoooooopid Ex
has my piping bag!



This is fun.

Oh yeah...and 2 pounds of powdered sugar...

OH LUCY!!!!!
