Nom Nom Cake!

First, I got up and ran this morning. It was dark, it was morning, it was cold (42F cold) and I loved it!

Second, its OCTOBER!!! This has to be one of my favorite months and especially this year because I have so much fun stuff planned including the next alphabet date which is the "E" date next weekend.

Third, I made Brian's cake last night and it was quite an experience! You can find the recipe that I used here from Food Network. I used a different recipe for the frosting only because I had a minor mishap with the stove! Plus this cake recipe called for 2 ounces of food coloring and I grossly underestimated how much 2 ounces actually is. So the cake turned out a little pinky but that is ok! For the first time Cake Maker it is not too bad (I wont be opening my own bakery anytime soon though).






I am so excited to eat it tonight! I hope it tastes good! Now it is off to work!! Happy Thursday!!

The cooler temps are nice! Good luck with the running. Morning runs are always the best when all is calm and nobody on the roads.
