basketball and birthday cakes

this may be the best chocolate frosting i've ever made. (happy birthday to friend/roommate chelsea by the way!) the secret ingredients are hershey's extra dark cocoa, whipping cream instead of milk, real unsalted butter, powdered sugar, and of course a little almond extract. the great thing about this frosting is that you can add cocoa powder to thicken it up so you don't have to add so much sugar, and it doesn't taste sickingly sweet, just chocolaty.

videonot sure why it's sideways. sorry! watch sergio's arm direct andrew where to go. I was lucky to be able to go see Andrew in action at a PHS basketball game. He's probably the buffest person on the team, you can see that we're related with our basketball prowess...uh, actually i hate playing basketball. i played one time on my mission and it about ended my companionship:"she just kept getting in the way."

I would play basketball with you, Emily. I think you have skills you have yet to discover. :)
