The opening ceremony of the Olympics is tonight and I have to say, I wish I was in London with all my friends. I hate to miss these big British celebrations – the Royal wedding last year; the Queen’s Jubilee; now the Olympics. It’s a weird thing to feel so far away and yet so connected to it all.
Anywho. In the spirit of the Games, a little self promotion. My Earl Grey Chocolate Cake was included in this Olympics-inspired PBS Food feature. I have to say, that cake is quite lovely, if you haven’t tried it.
And finally, some great posts from around the web this week…
