Huh? That’s not a 3 tiered fondant cake! So, despite my care in smoothing the buttercream and adding the fondant, I made some mistakes. The fondant was not stiff enough, and I used ganache in the cake without adding a buttercream dam first… so the beautiful cake (that got compliments on the way to the car) shifted and sagged by the time we made it to pick up Scott, Amber and Lindsay. Jeff and I looked at the cake and each other and decided to trash the cake and buy something from a grocery store. The birthday was awesome, even without that poor cake. Once I got home, I ripped off the offensive fondant and packaged the cake up for later eating. I mean, the inside is still yummy!

Finally, I finished the hat that I started weeks ago! The knitting took almost no time at all, but opted to block the hat before adding the ribbon. After blocking, I just couldn’t muster up the energy to add the ribbon… but I finally did it. Hopefully, the recipient likes it!

Uh… Jeff? Jeff? Why are you leaving? Jeff?

Chopper is not happy that Jeff doesn’t take him along to the gym!
