things in my oven



I ventured into the kitchen today and nobody died! Hurrah! And yes, I felt it necessary to write the word "cake" in icing on a cake. Just in case anybody was confused about what they were eating. I made these cupcakes for my boyfriend for a sort of pre-Valentine's Day eating extravaganza. They didn't turn out as pretty as they looked in my head, but at least they tasted good. I decided to make them pink and yellow, as I didn't want to make any vomit-inducing Valentine's cupcakes adorned with giant love hearts and buttons with phrases like "ONLY U" and "B MINE". Bleeurrhgh. So I made some pinky-yellowy-orange cupcakes and a "CAKE!!" cake instead. I'm such a romantic!

For my next kitchen adventure I want to make one of these bad boys:




I think that it would make me feel incredibly happy and incredibly sick at the same time. Worth it!

  2. I love that you iced "cake" on a cake. What a brilliant idea. I really want to try baking a rainbow cake too, they are so pretty! x

  3. OHMNOMNOM! I love the pink icing and the rainbow cake, I'd totally want to make that badboy too. On the shapewear: YES it's freaking tight, at first I thought I couldn't get it on either but after bit of snake-slithering around I managed to pull it over mah ass. I got myself a bodysuit with shorts (so really the whole shapewear package, except no bra because that's just tempting the devil to deliver your shapewear with a small A cup) and it took a while before I got it completely on. Maybe yours is really too small (a shame because that polkadotted swimsuit thingie was my second choice! So cute!) but maybe you just need to wiggle yourself into the godforsaken thing. If you get it over your ass, you're good! :-D

  7. Haha. Love that you wrote cake on the cake. It all looks so yummy. I can't stand over the top valentines day stuff so I would have probably done the same. The colors came out great. I want to try to make a rainbow cake too. So much food dye though - yikes. If you make one please post it :]

  29. That rainbow cake is utterly amazing, but surely no human can make that - if i tried it would probably resemble a breeze block covered in icing (badly) :)
