purple cake

today i made this purple lemon cake for some good friends who just moved back to San Diego. i meant to make it blue (like the sky and add white "clouds"), but when i put the food coloring in, it wasn't the light blue i was hoping for, so i added red to make it purple instead. i'll have to try experimenting with food coloring also. so far, i've only used the liquid food coloring from the grocery store.
the border was supposed to be white and purple mixed together, oh well


after i made the top border, it started to droop! it was really hot and humid today, plus i made the border too close to the edge, i guess, and the border fell in a couple places. i've been able to make a smoother cakes, but after i had to clean this up, this cake was kind of a mess.

I can't believe Lourie and her fam are back in town. Good for them since all of their families are here. What part of town will they be living in?

Is that who the cake was for? Yes, let us know where they will be located. I still think the cake looks beautiful! You have done a lot of baking this week.
