Baking on the brain

So life has been super busy lately and I had a much needed hiatus, but I guess with summer coming up I'm itching to really start documenting all the great things that are happening.

April was a blast! Here's some of the things that happened:

Made some breakthroughs with hooping
Saw Sinbad live in the ATL
San and I saw Rooney and Eisley
Jonathan and I made some craazy puppets for an upcoming puppet show
Made progress on my little hideaway
Attended art shows and cookouts with friends

Whew, I guess I really never feel like I do enough but looking at that list, no wonder I'm so tired most of the time. And I'm already forming a "to do" list for the weekend. I really want to start baking again, however, the main issue is that I don't want all those goodies sitting in plain sight of me. Perhaps I'll take them to the studio for the other artists to devour. Here are two things that look incredibly fun to try.

Vertical Layer Cake! Isn't this so much fun?! I really love the colour combo here and Darla of Bakingdom has an excellent tutorial. You can find it here.

Ocean blue velvet cake, need I say more. I can't believe how saturated that blue looks! I'm gonna guess that it would just be a red velvet cake recipe and you throw in some blue food colouring. Hmm...I may be out of the classic blue but I know I have a whole pack of neon food dye. Adventures, ahoy!

Squeezing these baking projects into my weekend is going to be a challenge but I think I can do it.

Have a great night!
