Chocolate Beet Cake


Back from a day full of classes in Red Deer – prepping for an early morning Halloween show on BT and party at W’s school – I’ve just made vats of icing (and while doing so stained my fingers a deep indigo) and divvied up little baggies of candies and shoestring licorice (for the chocolate truffle spiders) – and in my absence Mike made me a meat hand. Is that love or what?

But I was thinking on the drive back about beet cake – what else does your mind wander to on the highway? George Clooney? (Perhaps he was delivering me the beet cake for my breakfast in bed.. ) And I realized a lot of you asked for it but I didn’t post it. Here it is. (W decorated this one, and found it difficult to evenly distribute the sprinkles atop the cake.)

I’ll be wearing a whoopie cushion suit on BT tomorrow morning. (In approximately 6 hours.) I can’t wait to ask – does this whoopie cushion suit make me look fat?

    Whoopie Cushion – you looked great on BT this morning. Loved all your ideas and am passing them on to my ghoolist cousin (who just loves to entertain on Halloween) – and you don’t look fat in your costume…I took some pictures off the TV this morning and that MEAT HAND looks awesome, and those cute cupcakes! Keep entertaining us, Julie!!!!

    Yeah I’d say making you a meat hand is love. Good job Mike! :)

    Aw I wish we got the Calgary BT show, instead we get Edmonton feed out here so I missed the whoopie cushion. Pics please! hehe
