Sometimes I bake more than I feel like writing. And sometimes I feel like writing and haven’t baked anything new. That’s when I turn to my 3+ year arsenal of photos of confections past. I scan through the images, until one tickles my writing fancy. Well, today, I stumbled across these, and they really please, pleased me, oh yeah.
These confectionery likenesses of the Fab Four date all the way back to February of 2008, when I first started to really get into baking. I took a cake decorating class at the local craft store, and decided to experiment with what I had learned thus far, using my Mom’s birthday as the guinea pig. I found a cartoon drawing to be my guide, filled a bag with black icing, popped on the #2 tip, and coo coo ca choo – we have Beatles.
These were probably the best birthday gift I have given my mom in my life. Money can’t buy me love, but cupcakes on the other hand…
And even though it was over 3 years ago, its feels like only yesterday. I’ve been baking pretty much ever since, and yes, it’s been a long and winding road, but I’m getting better all the time.
P.S. I love you.
