Just an Update..

So it’s been over a week since I’ve posted. And that’s really really not good. I can’t believe how busy I am already- with homework, running, work, and college applications, I barely have time to bake and even less time to post :( Especially this week will be bad. I’m working tomorrow and Thursday from 3:30-6:45 and then I have a college essay writing course from 7:30-8:30, and the same thing next week. Plus I tutor and run a club and take 5 APs and ahhhh! How to balance everything will take some time to figure out.

Yep, I have a job now!! I work at Culinary Heights, which is a little bakery/catering place in town. It’s really cool, because I get to witness all of the business behind running a bakery-type store, but also a bit difficult, because I need to memorize all of the prices of everything there. But I’ll learn. It’s such a great experience and I’m so excited to be there!

Also, my 10K was Sunday!!! More on that in an upcoming post, but it was so fulfilling. I recommend running a race to anyone who has even an inkling of interest. I couldn’t run for more than about two miles at a time when I started training two months ago, but I worked my way up to 6.2 and it felt absolutely amazing finishing!!

Posts will be much more sporadic during the school year, and I’m sorry for that :( But I do have a few recipes I’m planning on sharing very soon, and we’ll see how it goes!

Birthday Cake Roundup

Hello all! I hope you had a wonderful Labor Day weekend!

Today was my first day of senior year of high school, so things may get a little hectic around here. As always, I’ll try my best to post regularly-about every three days- and stay on top of the blogging world. Good luck to all my fellow students!!

ALSO, yesterday was my seventeenth birthday!! I can finally see a rated R movie on my own!!!! Sadly, I can’t drive yet, but my road test’s in a couple of weeks (wish me luck!). On my birthday, I worked for eight hours at the town pool (which was fine because two of my friends also worked there), ran, went out to dinner, and then came back to the pool for a little after-hours swim with the rest of the staff. It was a really fun day, even though I had to worry about waking up early today for school.

As for my birthday cake, I haven’t made it yet! My dinner with friends is tomorrow night, so I’m narrowing down my choices. Here are some cakes that have caught my eye:

Momofuku Milk Bar Birthday Cake from The Baker Chick 

Pumpkin Crunch Cake from Baby Gizmo

Pumpkin Crunch Cake

Hershey’s Decadent Dark Chocolate Cake from Soap Mom’s Kitchen

I also really want to use cannoli cream or graham crust crust in some way…hmmm.
