Daring Bakers Challenge...postponed
So, yes. I know what date it is today. I had the cake baked up yesterday to be decorated, photographed and blogged today. Until last night. The following conversation took place between me and my 'little' sister after I came home from work last night.
Sis: Hey, can you bake me some cupcakes tomorrow?
Me: Err...I kind of have another cake to finish up tomorrow.
Sis: But it's my 21st birthday!!
Me: Your birthday isn't until next week!
Sis: Yes, but I'm celebrating it tomorrow because some of my friends have plans to go overseas next week.
Me: Ok, what kind of cupcake would you like?
Sis: (Showed me a photo of a mini woodland scene atop a cupcake) Can you do 21 of these?
So in the end, blood is thicker than water and I had to acquiesce. I emailed Lisa to tell her that some last minute things have cropped up, and therefore I will have to postpone my posting for this month's caramel cake until next week. Those who thought that I was going to completely skip the challenge should take a second look at the name of my blog!! So be back next week and I'll have my cake up here.
Oh, in the end we negotiated and settled for butterflies perched on top of the cupcake.
