Being the most social blogger ever, I baked a cake for someone. Not just any someone, but the ever ever lovely prim and proper Ms. Movita Beaucoup. a delicate little dancer, who writes the most thoughtful and heartwarming posts that will leave you waiting in anticipation for the next, who also, just happens to ice a cake like a pro. Every year Movita Beaucoup’s site hosts several competitions that make the masterful DIYers and skilled pastry chefs crawl out of their creative dormancy and show off their highly trained mad skills. These competitions also make me want to wither up and quit as I stare down the talent and creativity of her awesome participants and Movita’s own photo-shopping skills. I am lacking the years spent honing my cake baking skills, hours spent smoothing icing, and the creative mind to come up with a baked good not directly from a cookbook. But, I wanted to show my support as a fellow blogger and that I am a devoted fan, so I busted out lots of props and a random bunny to distract you. Then, I threw some sprinkles on the cake and in the surrounding area, in hopes that that would make it more appealing. Clean up was a blast.
For those of you who don’t regularly read Pass the Sushi, or are not yet addicted to Movita Beaucoup, please read the above with a level of sarcasm and dry wit you’d find on an ABC family special, think Gilmore Girls.
