I whipped up the family's favorite Texas cake the other day and covered it with The Joy of Cooking's Quick White Icing. I was reaching for the box of cake decorating detritus when young H came dancing in and said "Can I decorate it? Can I?" Instantly older brother P came running in, eager to be in on the action. My husband took over and decreed they could each do one half of the cake. I grabbed the opportunity to go gesso some panels in my studio and when I came back this was what I saw. The guys had had a lot of fun, but I am not sure we have ever had a less appetizingly-decorated cake at our house before. One benefit of this is that I was not tempted (much) to dig in!
