Perfect pepperoni rolls and cake art

Whenever I make pepperoni rolls, they end up like mutants. There's always a blow out or a big bulge that looks like a tumor. They still taste great (homemade dough), but they always look like shit. Yesterday, my batch of pepperoni rolls came out EFFING PERFECT for the first time ever.


The kid and I made a cake yesterday as well, with homemade buttercream frosting. Like my pepperoni rolls, cakes never come out perfect for me. But this cake tasted really good and it's got a lot of personality. I call it cake art.

"It's cake art, kid."


I made meatballs too, but I didn't take a picture of those. They just looked like meatballs. We ate them for dinner. Yum.

Happy Sunday.

It all looks great, Erin, and I'm sure it tasted fantastic. Well done. More importantly, thank you for cooking with your daughter. I think it's something families should do more of.
