After a far too cold winter on the East coast, I am really looking forward to May. Let’s face it, the long April thaw and spring-time showers are always the pits.
Soaking wet and super happy! Sure Gene…Sure…
A few weeks ago, I was out pounding the pavement in NYC and was nearly blown over sideways by a storm that turned my flimsy DuaneReade umbrella inside out and gifted me a very unwelcome bill for a dry-cleaners that broke my suit-buttons in a less than adequate cleaning and pressing job. Needless to say, I’ve had a case of the April grumps. May seems like a great month to eat my feelings and jump on the summer-happy-train.

Because it is my birthday in ten days, I am currently planning to eat my way to happiness on May 13th with a giant, multi-layered, mound of spoungey, creamy, deliciousness. This means that I have ten days to pick a cake, and become an icing expert. Doable? If Hillary can make 18 miiiiiiiiiiillion ity bity wity cracks in that ceiling, I think I can certainly pull this off.
These cakes are my favorites pulled from the instagram and blogosphere (from top left to bottom right: meganleevoigt, frlklein,bakegourmetoficial, untagged,passthesushi,milkbarstore, caralaurynmoloney,johnwhaitebakes, and cakeblog)
Here are five other things (in addition to my birthday) I am looking forward to in May:
5. New glasses: That’s right, I’m a nerd. . .
