Welcome home

My husband came back from 2 weeks of very rigorous training, so as part of a welcome home meal, I made him a cake.  It is chocolate with reeses in the filling (pretty much the same as the winging cake, but without the peanutbutter mousse filling, and I used chocolate buttercream instead of plain.)  I used a new buttercream recipe, but I'm not much of a fan, I'll probably go back to the recipe I've been using.  I got a lot of air bubbles, and the flavor just wasn't was I was hoping for, but it turned out alright.

oooh check me out!

Notice anything different?  If you don't then you've clearly never seen this blog before, because it used to look sad and pathetic.  But, thanks to Mandy and her wonderful blog designs, it looks happy and...not so pathetic.  She did such a fantastic job, was more than happy to accommodate any changes I asked for and designed the whole thing based on pretty much nothing.  If you're looking for a new blog design you can check her out here and I highly recommend that you do!  Now I feel more motivated to bake and blog!
