This one takes the cake...

Last weekend I had folks in the garden for our annual CANCERAMA!

I know, odd title - but we're astro geeks and we've got a lot of wonderful, watery crabs who live in Chicago.

I used the event as an excuse to make my best cake, a triple chocolate layer cake with chocolate butter-cream frosting (recipe credit to Cedar of NM who gave this to me during Feri training). I got creative and made a little crab out of fruit as decoration. I was particularly pleased with myself and secretly gloated over his cute little raisin eyes.

Hey...it's the little things.

See the cake and gorgeous crabs


How cute is this cake!


Close up on my mastery. ;>)


These crabs are actually cuter, but I didn't make them up

What a lovely cake! And how we Crabs appreciate home cooking. And fruit. And chocolate. And, well, anything to do with food. I may have to borrow the idea!
