life without betty

My birthday was yesterday. Where is Betty Crocker when you need her? You can buy French cake mixes, but there are only two kinds – yellow and chocolate. l don’t really like either of the brands they sell here very much, so l was happy to make one from scratch. No French equivalent for icing sold here, so l made that as well. Though the cake tasted good enough, l was glad when the candles were lit. lf its appearance is any indication of the coming year, my life will be turned upside down!
