i was baking a whole bunch of cupcakes last night, including these orange cakes filled with orange pudding, later to be topped with chocolate ganache:
when suddenly, a belated birthday package arrived at my door! it was full of all kinds of wonderful birthday presents from david and ellen, including these beauties, knitted specially for me:
yay, ellen! they'll keep my hands warm, and also, no one will be messing with me now. i love them! i also love my knitted tofu, so sweet. okay, bean, add it to the cute list -- because despite the fact that david called it "weird," what could be nicer? it's knitted, it's tofu, it has a big blue L on it, and it's a pincushion.
and there was MORE...my very own carrboro t-shirt (i am wearing it right now):
and amy sedaris's book:
signed by amy, too -- she likes me! actually, below this she gave me some top secret cupcake baking advice, since david filled her in on my cupcaking:
thanks, david and ellen!! i love my birthday box. you guys really made my day!
