the cake

it should be noted...
(since comments were made about the cake in my latest post)
that i made it.
yes! i know! i who may not know how to cook, can whip up baked goods when push comes to shove.

that being said...
it should also be noted
that i made the frosting.

and that the frosting was not yet hard enough when i placed it on the warm cake.

(it has been a while.
since i baked.

and that i may have left the party with frosting in my hair.
on my left arm.
a tad on my boot.
and just a wee bit on my skirt.

and that victoria may find frosting in her kitchen for days to come.

that being said,
it was a hit.
(i think.)
{i hope.}


a word about plagiarism...

i love when people reference my blog. or cite it.
it flatters me to no end. lets me know that things are
relevant and relatable.
(and it always makes my giddy when someone tells me,
but it's not necessary--it's that person's prerogative.)

i get that the blog world is in many ways about
inspiration. and this lends itself to a certain
amount of passing of ideas. we borrow from people.
use their ideas as a spring-board for our own.
it's an amazing phenomenon.
and a lovely form of sharing.

plagiarism is not these things.
it is stealing. you know it when you
see it. you know it when you do it.
if you think maybe you've done it--if
you're unsure--chances are, you have not.

i hate that i'm doing this.
but let it serve as a little public-service

(note the sidebar. and then scroll down).

follow up: i was alerted to the plagiarism by a very kind reader. i love it that you all have my back--it means so much.
