Today I woke up around 8 and found that I couldn't fall back asleep. I got out of bed, prepped for the day, then went and made a cake. A dear friend of mine just returned from his mission in Indiana and I figured it would be fun to welcome him home with a cake. Really, it was nice to have a reason to bake. I like baking so much but even more so I love baking for someone. Seeing someone enjoy something I've made is one of the things that makes cooking so wonderful.
Anyway, I made this cake. The buttercream recipe is sweet, but delicious.
I went and picked up my culinary certificate. Now all I need is a frame so it can go on my wall.
I spent the entire evening at Sam's house playing card games. It was a blast.
Best day I've had in a long time. I should start getting up earlier and baking things.
Except I'll probably sleep in tomorrow instead.
Update:: I was up before 9:30 to go to Ikea with my sister. That's like getting the best of both worlds
