I made these for a bake sale raising funds for breast cancer research. I guess they all sold, and I hear they were good ;P

Cake recipe from Sky High. Frosting is simply whipped ganache (equal parts whipping cream and chocolate. Heat cream just to a boil, pour over chopped chocolate. Let sit ten minutes, stir, and let cool to room temp. Move to fridge and chill a few hours until very cold. Whip and use!). They're topped with pink m&ms.

Today was my first day working at the cake shop (I've been calling it a bakery, but that's a misleading term ;P). The cakes/cupcakes they make there are awesome, and I am so happy to have the opportunity to work there! I'm a little scared, however, because after today I feel very inadequate. I know that's how you feel whenever you start a new job, but I'm terrified they think I know more than I do... Scary stuff. I like it there so far, though. I'm happy :)

They even bought pizza and wine for us for dinner! Except there was no wine for me since I'm the baby and all ;P

the pink m&m's are, the dot over the i, as we say over here : D
it looks really tasty, and i'll be sure to try that chocolate whipped cream once! (:
aslo, it's really well presented ^^
I'm happy you're enjoying your new job, even though it's scary :3
I could never work in a cake shop or bakery..
I'm TOO in love with sweets, i'd be tempted to eat'em all up :D

Lol, I hope I don't get tempted... It seems more like art than food though, even if it is entirely edible.

hehe, i bet you're more talented with not getting tempted than i am ;P
yes, food as art, is wonderful <3 so sad that some of it will be destroyed :| (eaten, haha)
but i think that it will taste even better if it's beautiful :)

Thank you!

And I checked out the site, but I was a little apprehensive when I saw they wanted my credit card number. I did some research and found that no one had had trouble, but then I just started getting a little possessive. I'd like to know what was being done with my photos. But thank you - it means a lot to me.
