For a several days I've been stuck unable to finish a post that my son and I wrote together. It was a great experience to cook, to laugh, to write. And all I have left is to put all threads together into a canvas of what suppose to be a post about our amazing little adventure. But as it sometimes happens when you write (or do something different), I got stuck. I know, that for me the best way to clear my mind is to disconnect myself from the task for some time. I turned off my computer, and didn't look it's way for two days.
I occupied myself with other activity: I baked a cake! I see a smile on your faces, yes, yours truly made a birthday cake for... well, my birthday, which is today.
Another reason why I baked was watching too much of Cake Boss (TV show) and my recent trip to Carlo's Bakery.
In this cake I combined few of my favorite ingredients: polenta, raspberries, and lemon.
Enjoy! And come back for the recipe... :)
