Another reason I’ve been missing lately is that I was hired to cater a graduation party last Sunday (more on that a little later in the week) and part of the project was making a red velvet cake with cream cheese icing. It was served at the party to honor the first wedding anniversary of Warren Richey and Linda Feldmann, both guests at the party and reporters for the Christian Science Monitor. Their anniversary fell on the same day as the graduation and, well, why not celebrate as much as possible?
Richey, a reporter for the Christian Science Monitor, actually just wrote a memoir about his divorce, remarriage, and trip kayaking around Florida in 30 days, and was in town for a book event. The book, “Without A Paddle,” sounds fascinating (I’m a sucker for memoirs), and I was tickled that I got to make the cake to celebrate their anniversary.
