Cake update

LLT woke me up at 7 am and off we went to the store...with a stop by Krispy Kreme. I was reading snippets of Julie & Julia to LLT as she drove. First stop RD for among other things, half a case of butter. The on to Safeway looking for Champagne grapes. No such luck, so after a swing by Starbucks we headed off to Balducci's to see what fruit they had. Still no Champagne grapes, but at least we were able to get nice raspberries and blackberries.

Then home to unpack and start working. It's now 12:34 and we just put the first layer of the 12 inch tier into the oven. We have some time since the recipe we are using for the carrot cake calls for 45 minutes at one temp and then another 20 at a lower temp. There is no point in working on any of the other tiers until this one is done. It's going to be a long day but the taste of cake baked within 24 hours of the wedding (as opposed to 3-4 days before) is worth it.
