Yesterday was a quiet day we spent doing not much at all. However, Mara did use that nothing time and made me an apron. Because today we were going to bake a cake!

Mara likes to bake apple pies and people love to eat them, so she had decided to bake one today and invite some colleagues over to eat it. And because she had some carrots left over, she decided to make a carrot cake as well.

The first cake we made was the carrot cake, because it needed to cool before we could put the buttercream on. It was hard work, but it was fun as well. And the apron worked really well! Not a bit of flour on me.

After lunch Mara and Gera continued with the apple pie. Gera made the dough and Mara peeled all those apples. I just looked while more and more apples went into the bowl. 1,5 kilograms or 3 pounds of apples! Mara is not very good at following the recipe though: it said a handful of raisins and she put nearly four big hands in. But she said it would taste great.

In the end only two people made it down, some had to work and others had other commitments. Which means that... we have lots more cake to eat this week.

I don't mind at all...
