So we are celebrating my little sister's 21st birthday today (one of the last nights before she heads back to school and I go back to France).
I got to make the cake!
Go Duncan Hines! Made a light and fluffy chocolate cake and then put razzzberry jam and cream cheese frosting between the 2 layers before adding dark chocolate frosting alllll over. This is the pre-candle shot though, ended up putting all those candles plus doing some decoration on the top. Good fun, I'm actually really happy about making the cake because I've been wanting to do some overly-sugary-american-baking since I've been back but Mom dosn't like sweet things around the house. Great excuse :)
So we had a wonderful sushi dinner out at the local sushi bar then back home for presents and cake. I'm stuffed! A little sugar high too ;) guess thats why I'm up late but its all good. Fun night with the family.
Basically I'm trying to get ready, I've only really got 2 more full days at home because I'm off on a little road trip to Oregon for 3 days next week. Got my little list of things to do but mainly I want to really learn how to drive a stick. I'd be nice to be able to rent cars in France. So anyway then I'll come home from OR, madly pack and then I'll jet off again! The adventure begins again...
