Validation!


This is an update to my last post...

I WON 2ND PLACE IN THE BON APPETIT BLOG ENVY BAKE-OFF! Sorry about writing that in all capitals, but I can't say the sentence without hopping around in my apartment, full of excitement and validation that Bon Appetit Editor-in-Chief Barbara Fairchild, pastry chef Francois Payard, and Fox 5 news anchor Dari Alexander thought that my cake was pretty good.

Some people have asked me if I'm upset I didn't win first place, but I can say that I never cared about the competition part of the event. The fact I was even one of the 25 bloggers they invited was enough for me. That invitation alone made me feel pretty cool, but now that I know that I was in the top three desserts is...I'm so sorry that I have to say this...the icing on the cake.

Oh wow! Congratulations to you! What an awesome honor and I am sure very well-deserved. The cakes sounds sublime and I look forward to taking for a test-drive one of these days when I have a free moment!
