Well that was silly

Why did I order 18th Century Clove when I knew it would be close to what I dyed a few years ago?  And the Broom Stick Brown isn't really to my liking. greenish with slight brown variation.  Not sure if I will sell or dye.
The bottom linen is mine.  Same color but different count.
I have been online looking for a particular top Carole wants for her reunion, I have been to all the stores, and back again with the returns.  Right now, I have five items waiting for her approval that she will see today when they come for the birthday dinner.  Then I will have to make the returns once again.  I think one of this group will be the chosen, and I will bling it a little more with tiny rhinestones.
 
My cake is coming out of the oven now.  Our traditional chip chiffon.  I wanted the Mahogany chiffon and started making this one before I realized the flour and sugar amounts were different.  Too late.  Maybe next time. 
  
I did get my larger boxes for Eliza Pomeroy and would like to offer a few soon.  Will let you know.
 
Have a great weekend.  Eat cake.
A luscious white sponge cake with unsweetened shaved chocolate throughout.  Not real sweet, unique flavor from the baking chocolate, a different texture than traditional cake, our family tradition.  I try very hard to not slice off the golden exterior to devour before adding the whipped cream icing.  No one will see that it's missing!  Once I'm gone, it will never be made again.

Thanks for visiting.

Your cake looks scrumptious! I sort of like the Broom Stick Brown. I think a primitive Salem witch style sampler would look nice or maybe crows. I think the name is influencing me to fall themes.
