Sarafina takes the cake

Posted by on Thursday, February 12th, 2009

I’m all for small victories, you know.  Each finished row of knitting, each hem and button hole counts towards some vital tally in my head.  We just had a dessert party/bake-off at work, and my Almond Sarafina cake took the top prize.  I am absolutely chuffed.  I’d show you the cake, but there is no external evidence of it to be found.  I am really, really chuffed–did I mention that?  Ahhhh, almond cake. 

Tomorrow, we’re off to West Virginia with some good friends for, well, someone may ski.  I’ll read and sew and knit and cook and not worry or work much.

    I love that cake! I might have to bake it for my own birthday! (B/c we had it for yours at Rhinebeck.)
