And we ate it, too! Happy Tuesday. It's been a good day here at the clinic. My co-worker, who I've worked closely with for the last 7+ years, found out that she's going to be a grandma! I've never seen her so excited and happy! I'm so happy for her and her daughter. But I'm also glad it's her and not me. LOL Other than that...we had an awesome thunderstorm last night! It rained and hailed and lightninged (is that a word?) for over an hour last night. There was so much rain - you should see all the dirt on the roads this morning. The area I live in isn't completely developed so there's lots of open land. When we get a lot of rain like we did last night, it causes flooding - I can't imagine the mess there must've been last night!
As I mentioned before, the bestie and her gang came over on Sunday evening for an early birthday celebration. The hubs asked what kind of cake I wanted. He asked this *after* he'd already decided on what he was going to make, so my want wasn't really relevant at that point. Anyway, since I didn't get much of a choice, he told me what kind of cake it was going to be (red velvet) and I told him I wanted a skull cake. I wasn't much more specific than that. LOL Well, if he was only going to half-ask what I wanted, I was only going to half-help him with the rest. Fair? I think so! So, sit back and relax - I have a lot of pictures to share with you. He said he'd document the experience so I could make a blog post. He did a good job taking the pics (and there's a lot of them)!
It started off as your basic run-of-the-mill red velvet box cake. One round cake pan. There was extra batter so he made 6 good size cupcakes.
Doesn't this look great?! I almost didn't want to eat it. Almost.
I missed out on PHD's weekly nail challenge this time around - first time in 10 challenges! - but here's a link to this week's gallery: Song Inspiration. She's going on vacation next week so there won't be a challenge this week. I get a little break so I'll be back on the game for the next challenge.
