I'm trying to keep my business, my triplets, and my waistline under control. I excel at one of those, fail at another one of those, and one is a work in progress. Which is which is day dependant.

A blatant brag

The above is a photo of the final exam piece I did for "Sugar Showpieces" - the entire thing (other than the board it's sitting on!) is made of sugar. The tree, leaves, rocks, pond, swing, ribbon, reeds, grasses...everything. I'm damn proud of it and am using this entry just to say that! I still have a hard time believing I have any real, intrinsic talent...but days like today make me feel a little bit closer to belief in myself and my skills. Of course, then I got home and baked some Anzac cookies. They were too hard, too small, and tasted pretty crap. Oh well, guess you can't win them all!

You've always been artistic, and given your pre-med in college, you're also good at science. Cooking, to me, is the perfect fusion of art and science. Great work!

I've never been able to make a cookie to save my life, and making a good, small cookie is a challenge -- almost as difficult as making the perfect omlette. :)
