In Israel for 2 weeks. lots to do and see. Yesterday we went to the beach near Ceasarea by the old Roman aqueduct with my lovely lovely baby niece Sheera. In the evening we had a birthday party for her mother - my sister. We baked a cake and I attempted to decorate it... Even tho I have never done it before, I had a very strong feeling that I am a brilliant cake decorator. I watch the Food Channel. Its easy.
It wasnt. I messed it up twice and had to wipe it of. I had a nice elegant sketch and the actual cake looked nothing like it. The piping process was frustrating and nerve wracking and the three of us working on it ended up screaming at each other and at least one of us stormed out during it. That being said, it didn't come out too bad and I now have a new found appreciation of cake people.The main thing is that we had a great party and the cake was delicious. Happy birthday sis.
