    I've never seen one of these either! But I did just see the photo spread of Tori Spelling with her herd of children and the purple bikini which matched her balloon like surgically enhanced lips in US weekly or whatever at my gym ~ anyone? It was terrifying.

    I haven't seen it but that is essentially like watching a Lifetime movie. I have a friend named Lou who loves Lifetime movies so much that he calls them Louvies.

    In non-LIfetime Movie news....the HR recruiter from NBC called me at 9:30 last night to see how my interview went. (Isn't that weird?) It was 6:30 her time, but still, I have never had an internal recruiter follow up like that. She's going to speak to the person I met with today and give me feedback.

    My other interview (for the job I'm the most excited about) is on Monday, meeting the President & Creative Director.

    It has been the strangest week.

    I am making a princess cake tonight for DD's party tomorrow. It is one of those bowl ones that you put the barbie in. Any advice from our experienced bakers? I am a little concerned about the icing on this one. I usually do an icing with very little butter, just lots of icing sugar and it hardens slightly on the surface overnight and keeps its shape well, but it a little hard to work with. This time I was thinking of trying a true butter cream icing, but am concerned it could melt as it has been really warm here lately. This cake has to look good, cause last year (after the party) I put DD's castle cake in the oven to keep it away from the bugs, and then turned the oven on for dinner She cried and cried, and still talks about how I burned her cake up. I am feeling the need to redeem myself.

    I have an icing that is super bad for you (it contains crisco) but it's good for things you need to be able to use different types of frosting. It can be hard...like for cookie tops or thin for icing and good for piping. I can PM you if you want.

    This is the recipe I have always used. Have made 7 wedding cakes using it. It doesn't usually melt unless it is put somewhere like a hot car or something.

    My baking doesn't usually include frosting, sorry! Sounds like you're getting some good help.

    Bonita -- it often sounds a lot more exciting than it is, to be honest.
