I got my first paying customer! To make a long story short, I ended up making carrot cake cupcakes for my sister to bring to work and ended up with some leftovers. I brought some to a couple of neighbors and one particular neighbor liked them so much that she wanted to buy two dozen. It wasn't the best time to get an order with the Superbowl on Sunday, but it worked out in the end.

We had our annual Superbowl party on Sunday. With any event nowadays, I'm becoming more ambitious with my baking skills. I made homemade pizzas. I kind of forgot how involved the pizza process was when I did it at school. It took three days just for the dough to get ready not to mention getting all the toppings. I ended up making six pizzas: Margherita (mozzarella cheese, basil and marinara sauce), plain cheese, my concoction of zucchini, gruyere cheese, mushrooms and black forest ham; and mushroom and Italian sausage. It ended up being a really good appetizer. I decided to use the leftover carrot cake cupcakes for dessert and made homemade Peanut Brittle. I couldn't make enough desserts so mom had to buy a chocolate cake and fruit torte from Safeway.

Yesterday, I went to my dad's co-workers house and made pizzas with his wife and three little boys. I made a double batch of pizza dough and couldn't possibly eat them all. I was hoping it was going to be easy on her. It was my good mom deed of the day.
