I'm a firm believer in multi tasking. I love to have a multitude of things on the hop at once, whether it be those of the domestic kind or perhaps the creative. Whatever it may be I like to mix it up. Yesterday however, I came unstuck. I was talking to a good friend whilst making a cake. Now when I mean talking, I'm talking real talking, not just how's the weather talking, but, real talking, like;
"Hey, I cut out ten girls dresses yesterday" said friend.
To which I respond as I pull myself off the floor at the thought of cutting out ten girls dresses in one sitting,
"Not in all the same fabric I hope".
And on we ramble for long periods of time as to the specific fabric chosen and the methods to which we sew our things together. Blah, blah.
This is where I came unstuck. So caught up in the Amy Butler pink peony choice of fabric I was, that as I was making chocolate cake, I forgot a main ingredient. Unfortunately, it wasn't the flour - which possibly could have resulted in a fairly decadent cake. Nooooooo......I forgot the sugar! And to add insult to injury, only discovered this on removing the odd looking cake from the oven. Now, had I been a bowl licker I would have discovered this ill fated mishap and been able to rectify it. But I'm not and I didn't.
So I made another. Better second time round. Decorated with sisterly love for the pre birthday bash.
