This past weekend my bff Theo graduated from JWU in Providence. As a surprise I decided to make her favorite cake - Red Velvet with Cream Cheese frosting. This recipe takes 1 ounce of red food coloring - that is quite the color.
I had a vision of what I wanted the cake to look like and it worked out perfectly. The cake I did in rounds and made it look like a button - even with an edge like some buttons have (she loves them) and around the bottom edge I did a neckerchief (we wear them at culinary school at J&W) with the nutrition coloring at the edge. For the cupcakes I made them into little chef hats with rolled fondant. The car ride to Providence was almost sudden death for the cupcakes, but they were super cute anyway.
For some knitting I finished another Koolhaas hat. This time Jason will be sporting his very own cotton Koolhaas. I really love this hat as you can tell it is my 3rd version with at least one more for now on the way (for me). It is such a great pattern and it looks so good when it is one that I can't help wanting to knit more. Also plans to cast on for some socks soon too.
Off to see a Red Sox game (my first one at Fenway). I will post pictures tomorrow. Perhaps there will be another no hitter tonight...
