A Success

The party was a smashing success. Everyone seemed to have a good time, and the tri-tip was awesome with my homemade aioli. Yes, I made homemade aioli. It was such a complicated recipe that none of you will ever be able to achieve that. My Death By Chocolate cake turned out really good too. For some reason as it cooled it kind of caved in at the top. So I thought I would flip it over onto the cake stand, but that didn't work either. Oh well, it tasted awesome so appearances aside, it was a success. I think that's the first cake I've ever made from scratch so I wasn't complaining.

Aioli recipe:
1 cup organic mayo
1 clove fresh garlic
1 tsp. mustard powder

Mince garlic into mayo. Add mustard powder to taste, around 1 tsp. (I used about 3/4 tsp.). Stir and serve.
