And of course, I came up with the somewhat sadistic idea that hey, I should make a cake in the shape of McCormick.
Seriously, self? Like I don't have enough to do already?
We definitely wanted to do some sort of celebration with the girls when they got back to school in September, but with the summer comes penthouse cocktail parties... and it would be the perfect time to do a test cake. Essentially, we couldn't not do it. It was simply the right thing to do.
And I know some people have asked me how things have gone asking for party donations, and I have always felt very lucky in that my friends understand that $10-15 can go a long way towards me funding such events, and hey, a night out in Boston costs far more than that, anyhow. I have people over because I want to and I can afford it, but I can continue to do it because I have help purchasing the food and alcohol. This particular party cost about $600 total, but there was both alcohol, food, and some capital investments like jello molds leftover, so it didn't make cost quite so much post-tips.
The cake structure specialist and I.
The hosts! I'm in a dress found at Great Eastern Trading Company - and it was perfect for this sort of event! I gave up on my hair, though. One of these days I'll finally learn how to not be scared of teasing.
Two more 60s beauties!
Everyone looked so great! It makes me so nostalgic for the summertime!
