birthday round-up...the cake!
i had a wonderful time making em's cake...it was martha's maypole cake recipe with seven minute frosting...and i must say i was nervous. esp. about those stiff peaks...frosting took longer than 7 minutes but i had reassurance from my sweet sister in law and an emergency call to dear e for confidence sake!
AND nik imported the rock candy all the way from our sweet belfast, didn't know it was so scarce, did you?!!!
if i had it to do again i would have put more frosting in between the layers, but i saved some aside to top the gumdrop cupcakes...yum!
