an Update! ...Sort of

I know I said I'd update my website, but I haven't gotten around to it. Maybe I will over maternity leave. :)

Well, I did take photos of a cake I made for a birthday party:

I can't wait to eat it... it's a pumpkin spice layer cake, with homemade cream cheese icing. I tried the whole chocolate leaf painting thing and it turned out pretty well. I used basil leaves and surprisingly, basil and chocolate are a pretty good combination! haha I left the darkest chocolate leaves on the basil overnight in the fridge, but I probably shouldn't have. You probably can't tell in the photo, on the darker chocolate leaves, the basil left shiny "water" stains on the leaves. The other leaves don't have that weird sheen because I peeled the basil leaves off before I went to bed. I don't prefer the "water sheen", but maybe others like it... just my findings.

This counts as art right?
