About Me:

My name is Olivia and I am a senior at Butler University. I spend most of my time in Lilly Hall as a BFA Dance Performance major. When not in rehearsal or ballet class, I write papers for my English Literature second major. In my super-abundant, never-lacking, this-is-highly-sarcastic spare time, I attempt to cook in my apartment kitchen, watch Youtube videos of ballet, knit sweaters that never seem to come to an end, and read books both silly and serious. If I could take any class at Butler just for kicks, I'd go for DiffyQ.

Summer at Butler: The Baking

This summer I have the good fortune to live with my roommate from our school-year apartment–the troublesome one who forces me to eat cupcakes–the one who spent a semester in France–the one who bakes.

Butler offers more than one option for its study abroad programming. My roommate went with IES, which has programs all over the world. The IES program was not a direct exchange (meaning an international student would not come to Butler when she went to France), which changes the financial aid. The nice thing about Butler, she says, is that there are lot of different programs from which to chose and so a vast array of cities. The downside? “It can be a bit confusing,” she told me.

She makes wonderful things.

She airbrushed the cake underneath this captain for Talk Like a Pirate Day.

The row of three dozen delicious cupcakes on our dining/coffee table. Chocolate, red velvet, and almond caramel.

Cakes someone ordered from her. That wire rack has come in handy after all!

I’ve been baking a bit as well. Last time I mentioned banana bread and cake. Well, I did not take a picture of the banana bread — it’s good, I promise — but I do have one of the snake cake. My baking roommate had leftover homemade frosting from some cupcakes, and I started to swirl the two colors. With a few details, we came up with snakes!

Snake cake:

Have a good Fourth of July! I hope you get a cake like this one. Or a custard tart like this. Don’t they look delicious?

 

Sssssssss...
