The 'Be Mine, Clementine Cake' WON!
By this morning I had long forgotten about the cake night blues. Isla and I were on to making muffins to use up some soft bananas, no more cakes for awhile anyways, when the doorbell rang. It was our Postie, our mail carrier Pam at the door. We first met Pam back in the summer when we moved into our little brick house, she had introduced herself and we swapped stories. Ever since we've been on a first name basis.
Pam doesn't usually ring the doorbell when she delivers the mail, so I was surprised to see her. She had a package for us from Nana, a bill from the phone company and an unaddressed envelope for me. Turns out Pam was on the organizing committee for the Chocolate Festival and when they announced the third prize cake winner as Eden DuPont........drumroll.........and there was no one to collect the prize, Pam stepped up and said that she knew me and would deliver it to me personally. Now that is one awesome Postie! In the envelope was my winnings - a gift certificate to a local spa in town.
I am still floored by the whole outcome, realizing it was worth all the effort after all.
I did manage to get this photo of the cake from a friend that attended the event.
