We bought a Covid-19 test kit, which proved negative, and I’m thankful not to have suffered a terrible sore throat or other miseries. I’ve simply felt rundown. And a constant drippy nose for several days left me unwilling to spend time on my laptop.
So I apologize for missing blog posts you lovely folks have been putting out. I’ll do my best to catch up. Meanwhile, I will share my latest silly endeavor. Back in the nineties (?) my husband and I sometimes bought a peach flavored cake mix and frosting. Yum. Perhaps because rich desserts are bad for my health I crave the forbidden fruit. Whatever the case, the item hasn’t appeared on store shelves so I decided to attempt it myself.
Add to the fact I’ve not attempted cake baking for at least a decade, I felt the desire to cut shortcuts besides the mix such as turning granular sugar into powdered sugar and all purpose flour into cake flour. Oh, and it’s supposed to be a three layer cake but I have only one pan and so cooked it in only two halves. ~shakes head~ The first half didn’t turn out too bad. The second wasn’t finished baking like I thought and fell apart. At least it tastes good and peachy. And that’s without the fruity flavored cream cheese frosting I blended.
