Not that I’ve had much time for baking cakes lately. I did bake a decent vanilla one out of Baked by Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito a couple weeks ago, but the highlight of that cake was the white chocolate buttercream frosting, which was so delicious that it felt like the cake was getting in the way.
There was a similar phenomenon going on with the maple pecan cheesecake cupcake I had at Sugar Mountain Bake Shoppe tonight.
I’ve eaten out a lot this week, and I haven’t gone to the gym once. The most exciting thing I cooked was a fried egg sandwich. I’ve been drinking a lot of coffee.
I got things done at the library, though, and I made progress on The Great Purge. I got far enough with packing that I had to take a couple days off, and I’ve even started getting a few of the things I need to have before I move. In just a few more weeks, budget season will be done, I will be in my new place, and I will be back in my usual habits with cooking and exercising. I’ll be starting to build whatever comes next.
It will be my thirty-ninth birthday.
Perhaps I will bake a cake.
