Thirteen days to go, and it's starting to feel real. In less than two weeks, Kelly Ripa and I will be decorating cakes together in New York to raise money for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. Foodbuzz and Electrolux have fed us a few more details, including what to wear (casual, they'll supply the aprons). Of course, New York casual and southern California casual are probably two different things entirely, so I've still got wardrobe decisions to make.
After Kelly from Evil Shenanigans told me she used to be a singer, I started thinking about thematically appropriate songs for us to hum during the event. My Twitter friends suggested a few classics:
- Mama's little baby loves shortenin', shortenin'...
- Big Rock Candy Mountain
- If I knew you were comin' I'd-a baked a cake
- Sugar, Sugar (the Archies, 1969)
- Sugar Pie, Honey Bun
- Brown Sugar
- The Good Ship Lollipop
- The Muffin Man
Coming tomorrow: pictures from my private cake decorating lesson with Gourmandise Dessert's Clemence Gossett! I am so ready for New York....
