What my degree in IPE didn't teach me about baking, DIY, fitness, and life…

National Cake Decorating Day

I have to apologise. I’ve been sucked into the black hole of house renovations and the blog has slipped to the back burner.

Anyway, all that’s for another day. Today is about CAKE….  my daily holiday email reminded me that today is National Cake Decorating Day and I just couldn’t let that slip. In the midst of the crazy, running and baking have helped keep me sane. So when my friend asked if I would make cakes for her twins’ birthday, I didn’t hesitate for a second.

This year the twins wanted T-rex and My Little Pony.  I’m no expert, but here’s my contribution to National Cake Decorating Day. Happy holiday to you =) I did them as puzzle cakes – baking a square, cutting out and piecing together a pattern (for more on that, see the link to the fish cake below)

Speaking of rainbow… remember how I said running and baking was helping to keep me sane. Well, in addition to training, I’ve run three little races: a ladies run for cancer (9k), the Brussels Mini Marathon (4k – yes we like weird distances), and my first Color Run. If you’ve never done an event before or if you’re a long time running fanatic, this event is just too much fun to pass up…
