When you think of dilemmas on NYE, you might think about what party to attend, what sparkly dress to wear etc.
This is why I did not see this dilemma coming.
I made this cake. No, it is not quite as pretty as the one pictured with the recipe. But it looks decent. The problem with a fancy NYE cake is how to get it to a NYE party. Yes, I signed on to bring dessert to a pre-concert dinner at Amber’s. I should have factored transport in and then decided to make cupcakes or a cheesecake. But no, I had to pick a cake. A tall cake. A cake that is taller than the cake carrier lid.
So please take note of this cake pre-travel. It looks somewhat decent. No promises for what it will look like after traveling to the other end of Minneapolis.
The plan: Tiffany, covered by a sheet or an apron or something to protect her cute outfit against the worst case scenario, will hold the cake while I drive at a snail’s pace toward Amber’s. We will probably bring forks with just in case things go awry and we need to eat the cake out of the floor of my car, a’la Rachel, Chandler, and Joey on Friends with the world’s best cheesecake.
Alright, I’m off to a prayer meeting for smooth cake transportation. I’ll let you know how it all goes…
