blogging is so often about only sharing the good bits of your life and in many respects i don't think that's a bad thing as i'm all for focusing on the positive. however, i do think it is nice to give a little insight from time to time into the less than perfect part of our reality. like when i told you about our dilapidated house. so although i was tempted not to post pictures of sunday's cake this week, i decided why not? yes, it is sunken. yes it is a tad on the damp side. yes, most of the raspberries and chocolate chips sunk to the bottom. yes, it serves to illustrate the lesson i learnt this weekend: i'm really not so competent a baker that i can wing it, mess with a recipe and always come out with perfect results. but while this cake doesn't look especially pretty, it does taste good and that's what really matters after all.
glimpses of our weekend:
// 1. sunday's cake: looked so promising before it went in the oven
// 2. sunday's cake less than successful cake: sunken, squidgy and not very cakey.
// 3. husband can usually be found outside, building a garage on any given weekend.
// 4. i've said it before, but check out those eyelashes!
// 5. it seems Ava has developed a taste for stuffed animal
// 6. this little person leaves trails of strewn toys in her wake
