The Good Housekeeping Book Of Cake Decorating

I have wanted a copy of this fabulous book ever since I first laid eyes on it. And luckily, I found one about a week ago at a thrift store for one dollar. My kind of price.

The nice man at the register asked me if I decorate cakes.
But I like cake! Surely that counts for something, right?
And besides, who can resist beautiful photographs like the ones inside this volume? Like these Christmas ones:

A cake that is horseshoe-shaped is just right for little cowboys and cowgirls:

An adorable red barn cake:

The sweetest little procession of cakes for a shower or small wedding:

And an assortment of party cakes:

Today is my birthday, and I'm not sure whether or not I will have cake. I'm trying to be a good Weight Watcher, and being in the presence of cake makes that difficult.
I'm just happy that I have the day off!

Oh, I definitely can have cake on Weight Watchers - it's just the having more than one piece of cake around that presents the problem!
I now have a very SMALL cake in the refrigerator!
