Fruits of My Labor


Well...in a way it is the fruit of my labor (but it's my daughter who actually made the cake - I just took the picture before I brought the cake to work with me)! My daughter is in school right now learning to be a pastry chef! The one pictured above is a Coconut Passion Cake, made with coconut (of course), pineapple and passion fruit (I think it was meringue on top).

On Friday, I sent her a text to see if she was bringing cake home. Her response was, "Yes! A nougat mousse cake with pistachio dacquoise, apricot gelee, and nougat mousse with hazelnuts, dried cherries, and dried apricots in it." Click here to see a photo she took of her Nougat Mousse Cake. Make her day and leave her a comment (maybe you'll get on her good list - LOL!) She takes absolutely beautiful pictures!

Today will be the third day that she brings a cake home with her...she says it will be chocolate hazelnut. Ahhhh....the joys of parenting!

Where have YOU been finding joy lately??? Please let me know!

You will enjoy the fruit of your labor. How joyful and prosperous you will be!
