We are lucky to have two resident bakers. What lovely smells there were in our house this weekend. Emma made a beautiful autumnal cake with a hint of maple syrup from a recipe in Nigella Lawson's book How to be a Domestic Goddess. She decorated it with tiny ivory sugar pearls that we bought in Paris this summer. (There was a whole section of sugar decorations at La grande épicerie de Paris!) It was so elegant and beautiful, it could have been a wedding cake.
I woke up very, very early this morning and realized that I was manipulating images in Photoshop in my head while I was in bed, so I might as well get up and do it for real! I have a day of work at the computer ahead of me. Then I am going to frame the prints that I've done so far and will post photos here in the next day or so. My Etsy shop is closer to being a reality. I've even ordered mailing supplies. Stay tuned. I'm going to have a special giveaway here sometime during the next week to celebrate my progress.
