Congratulations to our friend "D" who successfully passed his Viva or final oral examination yesterday, and is thus only weeks away from becoming a full-fledged PhD in Economics. His research area? Land management in the uplands of Scotland, home to sheep of many shades, standing stones, and drystane dykes. His reward for years of hard work? Cake! (plus a doctoral degree and our admiration).
(The Upper Cut Cake gals joined forces to bake these mocha (cup)cakes and create the smiling sheep, while Elanor took lead on design and executed the final scene with coffee-flavored buttercream icing and marbled fondant stones.)
