My name is Erin from Austin, TX. I’ve been lurking here for almost a year now, but have yet to really post much. I’m a newlywed (almost 9 months), and I’ll be 30 this summer. I always thought of myself as a career girl until just the last few years when a new, domestically oriented woman has begun to emerge. Baking especially has become my new hobby. DH loves this new hobby, but since it has resulted in us both gaining nearly 10 lbs since the wedding, my hobby has been curtailed to just baking for “special occasions,” mostly birthdays of co-workers. I work as a usability engineer which means I help companies make sure their website, software or hardware interfaces are maximally usable and user-friendly.
- Chocolate Covered Cherry/Strawberry Cake
- Chocolate Fudge Ribbon Cake
- Triple Decker Chocolate Raspberry Cake
- Darn Good Chocolate Cake
(are you picking up on the chocolate trend here?)
- Red Velvet (I’ve been making a scratch version of this cake which has become the boss’s favorite, but I one day hope to secretly replace his favorite cake with the CMD Red Velvet)
Back to work now.
