Mini Cakes And The One Eyed Baker

The 21st was my boss' birthday and I planned to make mini cakes for her birthday lunch.

I planned to start them Sunday afternoon to have ready by the following Thursday.

My plans didn't quite work out...I poked myself in the eye (like an idiot).

That sucker puffed up like a toad and started watering like a faucet. I couldn't see, had a horrible headache and looked like Quasimodo from The Hunchback of Notre Dame. By the time I could see again it was Wednesday and I ended up doing a rush job.

They look okay from far away...
but when you get close up it's not so great.

My chrysanthemum turned into a lazy water lily.

The roses are a little stubby but it was my first try. They may not have looked perfect but they tasted awesome! I did half in a lemon sour cream cake with a ginger cream cheese filling, and the other was crazy chocolate cake with espresso filling. YUM!
