Thanks for the replies, guys.
Hi Barbara ~ med school’s keeping me very busy. Fortunately schoolwork hasn’t really stopped me from baking. Our curriculum is designed around small-groups (every few weeks we change groups), so my group members have been recipients of my baking. Cake does wonders to group dynamics.
Hi Patrincia ~ I’ve been baking a few classics from the Cake Bible. Just got my copy of Heavenly Cakes. What a wonderful cookbook! We moved to a new place, so I’ve been having growing pains with my new oven (a *very small* European brand oven that can only bake one cake layer at a time). Once I’ve become more familiar with the new oven, I’ll probably slowly make my way through Heavenly Cakes. By the way, your blog is gorgeous!
