Princess Cake



I never before understood the appeal of these domed mountains of cake covered in typically pink icing so fluorescent it looked sure to give cancer. I didn't like the connotations of "princess," either--like you must have been Daddy's favorite little spoiled brat to even be worthy of such a cake.



And then...my dear friend Christine had one made for my baby shower, in a slightly less offensive shade of blue:















WHY did I not know that there was thick rich custard and whipped cream inside a perfectly moist almond cake heightened by raspberry filling? Or more importantly, wasn't I safer when I held my prejudice against them?

The phrase "too much of a good thing" rings loudly now in the aftermath of my cake hangover.

Baby shower??? Whee hoo!! (I actually yelled that out LOUD and woke Ted up, but hey, sometimes you've got to shout.) I wish you could see the smile on my face right now. xxx

Hi Jordan -- Sorry I had to to miss your shower and I am so glad you have been liberated from your prejudice against my favorite cake! You must be getting awfully big by now! I wish you an easy last few weeks, an easy birth, a great welcome to Ben, and I look forward to hearing about what this next phase of life brings! -- S
