Let them eat cake!

It's been three months since the fire. In fact the date of October 9Th came and went and I had to remind myself it had been three months. The past month,once the building went down and hauled away and the reconstruction started, things have improved daily.
Last week we glazed, fired and unloaded the kiln- a strange firing- lots of refires, but you can't have everything.

I am packing pots for a show which we do next week-end.
Meanwhile Mark is trying to throw- I am going to fire tiles and some trays in the electric kiln and we are both working in the 12x16 room.

Hummm a testimony to the marriage - maybe.
I think we both want our spaces back so bad it is hard to leave. Hour by hour things get better.
Yesterday they put up ceiling. Today walls- then it will be paint. See it is getting there.

So anyway- the cake.

I posted this cake on my cooking blog and Tom Gray picked it up and made it. So did other folks as it has made its way around the web.

Mark was green! He loves Pineapple upside down cake and this is his grandmother's recipe. I promised one to him and here it is- baked in a glass pan.

I am going to season up my cast iron because the one Tom made looked the best to date! Hands down.
So- the cake was delicious and Mark moaned over the last piece last night.
We did share with friends we had dinner with. Not that Mark could not do a bigger share himself-.
So- cake- pots building- it is all coming along.
