Thing one: Look at the potatoes I dug up today! These are from two prematurely withered plants and one I dug up for fun; none of the rest of my potatoes are ready to pull. I got about 25 potatoes from my two Russet plants, and only five from my Russian Blue plant. I still have two Russets, seven Yukon Gold, and seven Russian Blue plants left. I'm thrilled that they are doing so well. I will post more about my garden tomorrow.
Another request for the painted swirls. I think that might become my signature.
This cake is little....just four inches in diameter, but six inches tall (I thought that might be fun - in retrospect I would use less frosting and more cake for better stability) Neapolitan cake. Vanilla butter cake, chocolate ganache, and strawberry cream cheese buttercream. Yum! This cake combo has passed every taste test with five stars.
