The Color Is Blue

I will never be asked to be a hand model. My hands are not pretty, but they are capable.

My hands are my most trusted tools.They finish a sentence when that word escapes me, tell me if I have flour lumps in my cake batter, if my fondant has air bubbles before I wrap a cake, even if a cake is done. Like all well-used tools, mine are a bit dinged, and soft skin has been replaced with calluses, scars and, of course, colors.

You will always know what colors I have been tinting my fondant. This week's color is blue.
