Cake for Breakfast...

The kitchen is unpacked and I decided to celebrate by making a cake. I made a butter cake with a butter cream frosting. I topped the cake off with apricots that I stewed with vanilla beans and spices and then soaked in rum. I boiled down the remainder of the stewing liquid and mixed in a little rum to drizzle on top.

I guess since it looks like a bunch of sunny-side-up-eggs-over-easy, then it's okay to have it for breakfast.

LOL! When I first glanced at the photo I was pretty sure it *was* eggs and wondered what the heck kind of delicacy you'd dreamed up this time??!

having cake for breakfast (especially on a saturday morning) is one of my favorite indulgences. apricots soaked in rum sound amazing.
