A Round-Up on the Heavenly Cake Horse Race

Hello again. I was off graduating from Library School. While I was off-blog, a graduation of another sort was happening over at Heavenly Cake Place. Marie has finished baking every cake in Rose's Heavenly Cakes, finishing up with the spectacular mousse globe of Zach's La Bomba. For those of us who straggle a bit, another RHC baker, Jenn, is going to be picking up hosting duties while we finish up whatever's lacking.

My photographer is out of town, and I'm making some extensive and long-overdue changes to my web presence, but I'll definitely be finishing out the RHC bakethrough, and continuing to post the results here.

To keep me honest, and to help those of you who are sometimes asked to select Free Choice's the list (updated as appropriate) of cakes baked. The linked cakes have been baked and blogged. Those in italics have been baked at some point, but never blogged. The order of cakes is lifted from the list at the front of the book. Plenty done, plenty to go. Anyone have a birthday coming up?

That's quite a list Katya! Isn't it exciting crossing them off. If I'm counting correctly, you're not that far off. We can finish at the same time :).
