In the spirit of Inktober

Here's another small Alt☆Hero fanart, which I did with a ballpoint pen while on lunch break:

Rebel and Soulsight. I don't know if they'll have anything to do with each other, but I look forward to finding out!

I had hoped to do Inktober fully this year, but the ol' schedule is too full. Now that I think of it, I actually am drawing with ink just about every day (I almost never draw without ink after all) but it's for publication so I can't post most of it.

Recent cakes

Tried a third time to make strawberry shortcake, using this recipe. Since I couldn't get it to rise enough, I made two cakes and used them as layers. That was rather too much cake-to-cream ratio. Next time, I think I'll seek out a softer sponge cake recipe.

Then I tried a New Orleans torte from the Perfect Endings Nestle cookbook. It consists of meringues layered with cream cheese chocolate filling.

It turned out well, but is almost overwhelmingly sweet.
