Let Us Eat Cake: Daily Art Practice
This past week was unusual. It started off with my daughter giving herself a manicure and pedicure with a ball-point pen, of all things. Upon further inspection, I found that she also drew on the entire underside of her feet. It took close to 45 minutes to clean it off with makeup remover pads and rubbing alcohol. Needless to say, she is now banned from writing with pens.
Aside from that there were lots of errands, Dr.’s appointments, a rescue by my knight when my car breaks gave out, oral surgery and recovery. Sounds fun, right?

I mentioned last week that I painted some cakes from the book, Layered: Baking, Building, and Styling Spectacular Cakes. My versions are small because I wanted to fit them all on one layout. I took a picture of the photograph so you can see what they look like.
The first on is the black forest cake. It sounds delicious, chocolate and cherries!
Boston cream pie, another favorite!
Blood orange thyme cake. I am not sure I like the sound of this combination but I really like the way it looks with all the various layers and colors.
I am joining the T day ladies, hosted by Elizabeth and Bleubeard. My tea today is Tazo Organic Peachy Green Tea. I haven’t tried this tea yet but it is on my wish list. Peach green tea sounds delicious, don’t you think?
Happy Tea Day.
