Short and Sweet

I don't have the energy to write a proper post. My neck hurts and I am fighting some kind of virus/head cold. I over did it last week with the studying and I didn't sleep very well leading up to my midterm. I really do not know how I did. Some stuff I knew, some I didn't.

I have been thinking about food lately. Aaron's 1st birthday is coming up in a little less than 2 months and I am throwing him a party for family and friends and I want his cake to be perfect. I am not going crazy with a theme or anything. I just want to make this cake. And I want to do it from scratch so I am going to start playing around with cake recipe's and butter cream frosting's now so I don't screw it up come birthday party time. I am going to buy fondant for the spikes and try making my own from a recipe that I found that seems easy enough. Having never made fondant or butter cream frosting I need to practice. I have also been thinking about what food to serve. I think about it a lot. I don't know if I should BBQ or do sandwiches? As it will be at my Aunt's place I think I will stick to finger and party foods. I make a killer spinach dip, and Mexican dip. Throw in a cheese ball, a veggie, meat and cheese plate and a few other things and I think I'll be set.

Well I have 2 things to accomplish before hitting the sack which I want to do soon. Tidy the kitchen and get a massage for my neck.

And if you like what you read go ahead and delurk or better yet add me to your blog roll. ;)

I definitely think finger foods, dips and munchies are the best way to go for a party. You can pick up some appetizers to warm in the oven too, I usually buy some sausage rolls or an Oriental mix of appetizers and do them as people are arriving, so they can be eaten warm. Just fill a nice table with food, do it buffet style. It's usually a hit!

That cake is ADORABLE! Definitely post pictures when you make your own!
