Rewinding to Mother's Day 2011
I spent the entire first trimester saying "it's early."
I think I was trying to prevent myself from connecting with the growing being inside of me...'just in case something happened.'
Still today I consider myself more a Mom-to-Be rather than Mother at this stage...after all making it through 9 months and the birthing process are the actual rite of passage into motherhood right?
My cake was too dense and a bit dry. The custard was over thickened. However the chocolate ganache was great (and the same recipe I had used on the Mexican Chocolate Cake.)!
I am not sure I would say these suckers texturally tasted as great as they looked, but the recipe has got some potential and is worth another shot.
Not to mention Boston Cream Pie is my Sister in Law's favorite...so it was the thought that really counted on this Mother's Day :)
The rest of our meal was AMAZING!
Oh and so was the Carrot Ginger Soup!!
