I have had a bit of a baking extravaganza at my house over the past three days. My person, Bob is recovering from knee surgery, and since I felt slightly helpless. I decided to use my days off to create 4th of July themed bakes. That way I could feel productive, and stay busy, I don't do well when I worry. I also could watch him from the kitchen while he slipped in and out of a medicinal coma on the couch.
He is doing a lot better now by the way, he was even awake enough to watch me struggle, as I lit sparkler after sparkler, trying to get the right picture. He definitely heard a bit of whining as well, since I don't quite have the finesse I would like to have with a digital camera. A slow shutter and fireworks definitely made for an interesting evening. These 4th of July themed cakes ( yes, I made cupcakes too) have been a dream of mine for quite a while. I am quite happy with the outcome if I do say so myself, I hope you enjoy them too.
