So those of you who follow my blog religiously, all 8 of you (not really even 8 cuz I know my wife has at least three accounts and all are following me, but whatever), I thought you might be interested to know I made cake balls a couple weeks ago. I have some pictures....
Ok, so they're not balls, they're cubes.
And that's all I have to say about that!
Ok, maybe I have a few more things to say. First, they are freaking amazing. I'm not going to bore you with the recipe because you can find it anywhere, and frankly I don't even remember. Mine were far from beautiful.....duh, this is the ugly cheesecake! I don't do pretty. Not to say I don't try sometimes, it just never works. That's why I love the word rustic....take this bench for example.
Last year for Christmas my wife asked for a dining table. So I ask her what she wants...and she shows me a picture of a table on restoration hardware's website of a "rustic" table made from reclaimed 100-yr old pine. So I thought to myself, if they can take some crap that's 100 years old and make it look like that, why can't I take some lumber that's brand new and do the same thing. So I made her a table, then while I was at it, I made this bench too. Now she has a dining table that is roughly 8' long and almost 4' wide with a bench to match. It's rustic....and restoration hardware was charging way more than a grand for their version...granted if you calculated my time, that's about what this one cost me. However, last winter, time was something I had a lot of...not so much money though. So here is an example where ugly is beautiful.
