Unfortunately the House passed it, but the Senate has said it won't look at it. (Info and link from Sarah.)

So, I saw this post on [livejournal.com profile] food_porn for this cake, and I am so freaking obsessed about it, I can't stop thinking about it, and omg I must make it RIGHT NOW.

The amazing baker who did this posted a tutorial today for the rose-frosting, so I think I'm going to try to make it tomorrow. Happily, I have somewhere to take it--going to Judy's for dinner. I wasn't planning on bringing anything, or maybe just bringing the brownies I made. But now--I have to do this. And I'm (pessimistically as always) totally convinced my first attempt is going to suck, but I don't care. I really really want to try this out. I'm sad she hasn't been able to do the tutorial on the vertical cake because OMG I WANT TO DO THAT HOW HOW HOW? *shriek*

Anyhow, she has a buttercream recipe she recommends that I'm going to use to try to help me out. I don't normally like buttercreams because they always seem too greasy to me (unlike cream cheese frosting, which is my favorite, but is a total pain in the ass to work with). I did try a swiss buttercream once, and I did like that better. But I can only imagine that for this decoration, a really solid stiff frosting is needed. So.

AHHHHHHHH I WANT TO GO DO THIS RIGHT NOW RIGHT NOW!!!! *FIXATED*

OMG between this and watching The Social Network last night (a topic on which I have much to say) my own incredible lack of a giant brain or awe-inspiring creativity is so glaringly obvious. Vertical cake! WHO THINKS OF THAT OMG! And I mean, I don't care, it can't be helped, but how are some people so freaking amazing? And is there a well from which I can drink to be more like them?? AHHHHHH!!!!
