New Clothes


I will be another year older next week.  One more 365 day rotation completed.

I will be baking my own cake.

This year I have chosen the Chocolate Lavender Cake with Mascarpone Earl Grey German Buttercream.  If I was looking for an accurate self reflection at this point in my life, I would probably go with the vanilla, but I need this cake.  Something needs to change.

Chocolate because chocolate is always a good idea, it is really the cornerstone of my coping mechanism.

Lavender is lovely.  I keep it in my dresser drawers.  It makes me happy and I’ve never put it in a cake, so it’s something different.  I crave different.

Mascarpone because it’s yummy like cream cheese, but it costs more, it’s complicated, and harder to work with.  Me too.

Earl Grey is tea and I’m all about tea.  Tea heals and it makes me a better person.
