She and Pipster worked out a design on paper. I was resting on the couch from my labors.
Ack! Another blurry picture! But the cake was rich and moist while the frosting was too sickly sweet for me. In an effort to make it "not too cream cheesey", I put in too much sugar. No one else seemed to mind.
Oh, and lest you put me on a pedestal and idolize me, let me just tell you what a raving lunatic I turn into when I eat something like this! Like the cookie monster, only crankier. And not as cute.
