Valerie is a 42-year-old, single, Reformed Christian lady who lives in Baltimore. She doesn't remember a time
before she knew and loved Jesus, but she does remember accepting John Calvin into her heart in March of 2000.
Valerie is a member of Christ Reformed Evangelical Church in Annapolis.
Though her career aspiration is to be a housewife, Valerie has not yet found anyone suitable who wishes to hire
her for employment in that field (or, more properly, anyone suitable has not found her), so in the meantime she
earns her daily bread working in communications -- editing, writing, print design and website management.
This one was just a simple 2-layer snickerdoodle cake (snickerdoodles being cinnamon, not curry flavored!) on which I piped some simple decorations. Or so I thought. I was using one of those store-bought icing tubes, and boy was it hard to get that stuff to come out! It required much more muscle power than it seems cake decorating should. And I biffed the spirals...should have been mirrored. And the layers kind of sank in transport, squeezing out some of the frosting between them so the cake ended up looking like it had a spare tire! But Merry was not displeased, nor was the rest of her crew. And I timed the delivery just right...got invited to join them for dinner out! A delightful evening with a delightful family. (-:
