Being Lazy is a Trait of Mine

...and I don't like it. Really, I am not that lazy but instead of posting my blog yesterday I was making birthday cakes, watching the Cake Boss and DC Cupcakes (reality shows about bakeries, yes please!)making fresh and spicy black bean burgers, painting my kitchen cabinets and going out with my friend Bonnie and our dogs. So really a full day, but in my down time, my spare time after I finished West With The Night by Beryl Markham, I should have blogged my Ask A Vegan. Now I am torn between Howl's Moving Castle and posting some new and interesting stuffs. Are you ready? This is me being productive, this is post number one of the day.

the birthday cake, lemon cake with lemon buttercream, filled with raspberry sauce and topped with fresh raspberries.

Good News!
This Thursday I have a meeting with a local restaurant owner who is going to sample some Rikki treats and if he likes them I got a job! I will be baking for his amazing place and if it works out I will also be baking for his tea house. Can we say awesome! So please everyone, keep those remarkable digits of your crossed in hopes that I get the job. I feel this would be what I need to start building a following so when I decide the timing is right to open my little bakery and share my love for baking with others, there will be lines of people waiting to indulge on snacky foods made with love.

  1. Yay! So glad you got an interview and I wish you the best of luck in getting the position! You should open your own bakery, like I've said before. All your cakes look so beautiful and better than some I've seen in bakeries. I know your future shop will do well!

  2. According to the list of the non-blogging things you did, I would have to say that you are the exact opposite of lazy! Also, that cake is beautiful and sounds delicious!

  3. I think I just orgasmed at the sight of that cake! AMAZING!
    I took John to the AZ Museum for Youth today and they have a whole Japanese Pop Art exhibit and a big art piece from My Naighbor Totoro. So cute and it made me think of you :)

  4. Yay! Fingers crossed for you for sure!

  5. Fingers and toes crossed - if he has taste buds and eye balls you will get the job! :c)

  6. this cake makes me soooo hungry. looks delish.
    and good luck!!! thats such an exciting prospect. keep us updated! :)
