anyway, super cute skirt! did you use a pattern?

nope, just kind of winged it! It ended up a little big around the waist, but it was pretty easy to take it in.

Perhaps it is the extreme workload that has been plaguing me, but recently all I have wanted is some chocolate cake. Amen. The first one (which was SOOO AMAZING) is actually a banana cake, because my mom bought about a million bananas on her last trip to the grocery store. So without further ado, banana cake with banana cream cheese frosting and a chocolate ganache glaze. I'll start right in on the gory details:

holy moly! a full view:

wowza. Did I mention I loooooove this cake?
However, apparently I have to balance amazing recipes up with repulsive ones. The actual cake was pretty excellent (chocolate buttermilk) but the frosting was disgustingly sweet. It ruined the entire cake. Sad face. It looked pretty though, so I'll give you a picture:

Since both of the recipes were from the Magnolia Bakery Cookbook (a bday present from my lil' bro) I'll give a quickie review of the book. The cake recipes were both AMAZING (although I tinkered with the banana one a little bit) so I totally recommend that portion of the book. However, the frostings were horribly sweet. Really gross. Sorry, magnolia. The cream cheese frosting was technically their recipe, however I only added 2 our of the 5 CUPS that they called for (what?!) and it was still plenty sweet. In the aforementioned sickly sweet frosting, I used 2 CUPS LESS than it actually called for, and I could still only eat one slice before trashing the thing. So all in all that was a wordy way of saying: I recommend the cakes in the book but if you make the frostings, put in less than half of what they call for. So yeah. Enjoy your days/night, everyone!

So last weekend I was studying for finals/writing papers/doing physics problems sets when I thought: you know what would be more relaxing than this? Sewing a skirt! So I made one. And it was much more relaxing than a problem set. It makes me feel like a little country girl when I wear it. So, pics!

zipper view! (How proud am I of this zipper? Thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis proud!)

Pleats 'n lace closeup.
So thar it is. And then on Sunday I realized that perhaps it was not so wise to put off all that homework... and so spent 12 hours straight on it. No kidding. (You'll be happy to know I got an A on my problem set, and am one step closer to finishing my junior year of high school!!!!)
Have a good day/night!
