I was a bit nervous the cake would be too dry to swallow and contemplated making a simple sweet glaze to dress its top.
Time was not on my side so I had Chris sift powdered sugar over the top; perfection!...except I forgot to take a snapshot the cake's finished state; you'll have to settle for the topless version.
I also had a tiny dilemma on my hands; I forgot to plan for the tables center piece. It just totally slipped my mind. I raided all my cabinets like a game of scavenger hunt and for a second, I thought about snipping some flowers off my neighbors yard (which I didn't!). In the end I came up with this little doodad.
Have I mentioned that Chris has this new obsession with using empty glass bottles as his regular drinking cups? He drinks everything from juice to milk out of a glass soda bottle; pepsi natural bottles to be exact. I snagged a couple of his less-used glasses and filled them up with branches of horsetail and water. I may just leave them up for the entire season.
Is it just me, or do some of the most creative projects develop in a spur of a moment crisis?
