The menu: Homemade rigatoni with pancetta in a fontina cream sauce, rolls, salad, and this cake. Only I chickened out and didn't add the black pepper to the icing. Now I have to make it again...
I didn't take many pictures that turned out well. It seems that whole low-light, no tripod, not-knowing-how-to-use-your-settings thing didn't fare so well for me this time. But there were some cute ones of the kiddos. And really, who doesn't love cute pictures of cute kids????
|Little D-bug. She was a riot. I need little people around me more often because I miss this.|

|I love to make small cakes. Typically I use 6 inch pans and cut recipes in half. As you can see, it was almost perfect!|
*I don't really think it's nonsense. FYI.
