excuse the image quality - it was this or a photo I took with my cell phone.
The cake was great, and I especially enjoyed picking off all the raspberries from the leftover piece of cake - it was my birthday cake after all. I think to me desserts are a lot like the wrapping on gifts - the pretty exterior almost excites me more than whats inside. So, thanks, S, for making me a cake that was not only tasty, but beautiful. :)
I also left their house with two bags full of fabric scraps - let the crafting begin! I'll be sure to share whatever I come up with.
