not me, no no, but in class yesterday we finished up our wedding cake project. the way the project works is that the class below us creates a wedding scenario: in this one, a japanese college student was marrying a tattoo artist, and they had an asian themed wedding. as such, i decided to play to my strengths and pipe a sumi-e style painting on my cake with chocolate. first i had to make the darn thing, fill the layers with green tea icing, crumb coat it, and cover it with white fondant. then i melted some chocolate, rolled a bunch of tiny piping bags ('cornets' to those in the kitchen) and painted a japanese-style landscape on the cake. i was pretty pleased with the result.
life has been absolutely upside-down crazy the last week. i feel like i haven't had a moment to breathe. it's been busy in the best way; things falling into place for the most part, but still definitely falling and i feel like taking my sanity with it. my final exams start tomorrow, i didn't get to sleep until 5 in the morning last night and i have a to-do list of about 88 things before i leave for chicago sunday afternoon, straight from the weardrobe conference. so i haven't been the best blogger. a quick catchup:
socks: american apparel
dress: urban outfitters
hat: vintage from ebay
i have been on a vintage hat-buying binge lately. rather impractical but pretty fun.
and now, lovely readers, i gotta sleep. i am completely running on empty. so much more to come.
