Night-time wrap-up

The frosting was much easier to work with, being refrigerated and then brought to room temperature. I think I'll try to do that in the future when I make this recipe. I need to get some good quality 8" pans, if I'm going to keep using the fancy cake keeper, though. The icing on the sides gets squished in it.

Ro is still the queen of stamping, at this end of the I-64 corridor... I think Tigger was more creative than me, in what he did to his envelope, with a scrap of rubber from trimming stamps. But Knight seemed to like my card nonetheless.

Dinner at Ro and Knight's was absolutely yummy! She even managed to make chicken breast yummy. (I'm a dark meat fan.) I'm a total goner for his mother's dumplings, oh my. The cake turned out well, and Critter pronounced it "too orange-y." Hee hee. We watched last week's episode of Angel after dinner and presents and cake.

Knight seemed to like the schlock I picked out, but I can't remember all the titles right now. Tigger made him origami wolves, and he also folded the dinner napkins to be wolves. They made the table look quite fancy. (It gets a headstart, being Knight & Ro's dining table, which is quite fancy to start.)

And now I'm getting ready for bed while I wait for Wolf to call, on a late-night phone call. Perhaps I'll sleep better tonight. :)
