Long time no blog!

I'm so excited that I've actually been busy lately. All of my sitting around earlier in the Summer (which now feels as though it's ending quick) had me worried that I'd never leave my house again. Luckily I've been out and about. I've been over to Sapporo a couple times this month. The first time I went with friends Blair and Chris to visit the beer gardens and to see the Susukino Matsuri. It was a pretty relaxing trip. 
I also went to the Rising Sun Rock Music Festival with Kasi, Chris and Lauren. It was good time and they had yummy non-fair food - like corn and cucumbers! I have to admit, I didn't really didn't enjoy the music all that much because I couldn't understand it at all. So, Kasi, Lauren and I went to Sapporo proper to go to a dance party... altogether less relaxing than last weekend.

 The end of the Summer is also birthday time so I ended up making three cakes. The first one I made was for Adam, Sakura Cake with Green Tea frosting. Those pink things are supposed to be Sakura Petals, but Adam confused them for an abstract expression of my inner artist. The pink one was for Kasi and was spicy-chocolate with Vanilla frosting. She loves pink. I made Eiko a Vanilla Bean Cake with Chocolate Mousse frosting. It was pretty good, but my first attempt at Marzipan was kinda a bunk...
