Strawberry-Topped Chocolate Birthday Cake
Here’s the deal. I’m always slightly disappointed (and sliiiiightly annoyed) when I visit a blog and they’ve gone and done something like a “Wordless Wednesday” post. I mean, I sorta get it. Sometimes there’s just not much to say, or the photos are so amazing they do all the talking or whatever. Blah blah. It’s just that usually when I visit a blog, it’s 60% for the oogle-worthy food photos, 20% for the recipes, and the rest for the commentary! So basically if my calculations are correct, without the commentary I’m being stripped of at least 20% of my blog enjoyment! That’s generally at least 80% unacceptable!
I like to read about the creation of the recipe, or someone’s workout, etc…(except I don’t like to hear about everything someone ate in a day, especially if the photos aren’t super lovely. That’s just me.)
So, what else am I probably going to do today but disappoint you all (maybe you’re relieved and you like a break from jabber?) by not exactly following this wordless trend, (since obviously I’ve still done and am still doing some blabbing!) but by cutting it short. Slightly wordless Monday? Mostly wordless Monday…..ugh, it’s a working title, darn it! 😉
To be real with you, I have stuff to say. A lot of stuff. More stuff than I should say. But I mostly feel awful because I left town and forgot to bring with me the recipe for this awesome birthday cake I made for my brother’s fiance…future sister-in-law! So, I guess you get to enjoy it in photos, and I hope you will forgive me for not saying more and not including the recipe!
