It's wedding week around here again and today is baking day. It's only 2 p.m. & I'm wiped. I've baked a 9x13 sheet cake, 2 6" layers, 2 9" layers and then two 12" layers...the last one baking now. Besides that, we've done "school", had a tea party, played ISpy Memory and the kids have kept me hoppin' doing mommy things like disciplining fits, fights and cleaning up accidents of several varieties. Aaaack!

The GOOD thing in all this craziness today is that I've been cleaning as I go so my kitchen is practically spotless besides the giant stack of wrapped cake layers on cooling racks in one corner...whooo---hoooo! This is a momentous feat for moi! I guess you could say that I've given up on the magic kitchen fairy who I wish would clean up after me and donned my own set of wings.

Well, wish me luck the next couple days as I assemble and decorate this cake...hoping it turns out as beautiful as the picture the bride gave me (not anything like the cheesy clip art I put here)! For sure the 3 tiers of Dark Chocolate Almond cake filled with chocolate hazelnut mousse and iced with cream cheese frosting will be one rich & yummy if only I could eat some myself..........
