one of my out of town friends (boston) may (or may not- it’s not over till it’s over) be going through a rotten breakup..
she came to my house to seek solace and care (hasn’t eaten, doesn’t sleep…you know the drill!)
so keith and i stayed home all day and all night with her and i decided to bake for her in the hopes that she would eat SOMETHING…plus my son ended up going to a friend’s house for dinner so i had to send a cake with him too!
i baked a big coconut cake, a small coconut cake and several mini yellow cakes with various frostings!
this is the coconut cake i sent to my son’s friend’s house… supposedly they LOVED it…even though it didn’t look perfect.
here is a slice of the smaller coconut cake i baked for my friend…she didn’t even taste it! (wish i could say the same for me!)
here are a bunch of cakes… i baked classic yellow cake but made milk chocolate frosting, vanilla frosting and of course for keithy… MOCHA frosting (which is just milk chocolate frosting with a little coffee added to it). these are all mini cakes…the size of ez bake oven cakes…but no ez bake oven ofcourse!
and then keith went to my parent’s house and raided their kitchen for his dinner…thankfully my friend finally ate some of this… the rigatoni dish is out of the rao’s cookbook…it’s rigatoni with cabbage and sausage… i LOVE the cabbage from this dish but not the sausage…
and here is my depressed friend on my couch (note: she told me to post her on the couch- said the only way she’d be comfortable crashing at my house was if i could at least blog about it!)
so…how do you mend a broken heart??? how do you help someone through a bad breakup???
maybe something to discuss on the show tomorrow…and certainly on the blog!
