Thirty-one years ago when I was a teen-age bride, I could barely boil water. So no, I did not bake my own wedding cake. And since my husband is still my only heartthrob, I've never had another opportunity.My most memorable wedding cake experience, therefore, occurred when I attended a reception at which the wedding cake was served only to the privileged few at the head table. But then, that wedding also featured a cash bar, so there's no accounting for bad taste.Of course, you want your cake to be the piece de resistance for everyone.

WACO, Texas - How many times have you used phrases such as "cool as a cucumber," "piece of cake" and "nutty as a fruitcake"? Most sayings about food or referencing food are valuable to the time when they were created, said Lani Raiber, an assistant professor of hospitality and management studies at the Culinary Institute of America in New York. "Think about the saying, `Bring home the bacon,' " Raiber said. The phrase currently pertains to wages, not the pieces of sizzling meat served at breakfast.

It's an intriguing proposition. Can outdoor soccer star Jean Harbor do for the Blast what he has done for the Maryland Bays? And is indoor soccer the piece of cake Harbor has suggested it to be in the past?The Bays All-Star finally reached agreement with the Blast Saturday, and now must deliver the goods. While Blast coach Kenny Cooper is saying he does not expect Harbor to come in and immediately do it all, Harbor has contended for two years that with his ability, the indoor game will be no problem.

Facing the New Year with resolve is a piece of cake -- especially if you're a "foodie," and the cake is chocolate. Here's a smorgasbord of resolutions from food writers and others who put culinary concerns at the top of their 1992 agendas.*It happens round about New Year's, all years. Now that pasta has apparently been canonized as a dietetic OK, some worry is off the waistline. But I simply can't do anything about potatoes. No use swearing off. I love them. And in fact, they can be good for you. And they're about the only year-round vegetable that comes in those big, grainy utility grades hauled in from the west and in much classier, dense, small white and red types -- luscious!

EACH TIME we have people over for dinner, the same conversation takes place with at least one pain-in-the-neck during dessert:"How about a piece of cake?""Oh, I really shouldn't.""Are you sure? It's very good. Maple walnut.""Well, maybe just a sliver.""Here you go . . .""Oh, God, that's too much. Half that.""Coffee?"No, better not. It'll keep me up all night.""Are you sure?""Well, maybe half a cup.""Cream and sugar?""Doctor says I shouldn't. He'd kill me.""Are you sure?""Well, make it a smidgen of cream.

This is a story of how not to fix a clothes dryer. It is a tale full of lint and disappointment. If you are looking for an account of epic victory, of man over machine, look elsewhere. I fought the dryer and the dryer won. This domestic conflict began, as so many do, on a weekend. Last Sunday night, as is my custom, I was touring the grounds, emptying wastebaskets in preparation for the Monday morning arrival of the municipal trash truck. In the laundry room, I noticed that there was a load of damp clothes in the dryer.

Let it not be said that Comptroller William Donald Schaefer is incapable of apology. Two weeks ago, at his first Board of Public Works meeting since losing his bid for re-election in the Democratic primary, the ex-governor so ticked off current Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. that Ehrlich had an aide take away the pick-me-up pound cake he'd planned to give his friend. But when Ehrlich walked into yesterday's board meeting, he was greeted not by more rants from the comptroller but by a neatly wrapped carrot cake on the table in front of his chair.

At yesterday's Board of Public Works meeting, the first since Comptroller William Donald Schaefer lost the Democratic primary, Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. was planning the same kind of pick-me-up he had employed time and again to stay on his ally's good side: a freshly baked cake from the Government House kitchen. One of the governor's aides stood in the wings at the start of the meeting, holding a plastic-wrapped pound cake (the chef's grandmother's recipe) with a yellow bow on top. But Schaefer's opening comments blasted the governor and his staff for not taking responsibility for the voting problems in the primary election and blaming them on state Elections Administrator Linda H. Lamone.

HENNIKER, N.H. -- Sean Durgin wasn't ready to reminisce about his brother. It was too hard to say, "We used to ... ." And he couldn't look at the body; he found it hard to even say that word. It wasn't a body. It was Russell, the Army sergeant. Russell, the jokester, the goofball, the 23-year-old guy who loved to drink beer and planned on proposing to his girlfriend when he returned from Afghanistan. But Russell Durgin died June 13 in an enemy ambush in the mountains. His twin brother Sean - himself a military man, an Air Force staff sergeant, now a member of the Maryland Air National Guard - had been here in his hometown to celebrate his recent graduation from the Community College of Baltimore County when the Army casualty officer brought the news of Russell's death.

Kayla Passaro, an 8-year-old from Rosedale, watched with glee as a family admired her work of art -- a detailed Easter-themed gingerbread house accented with candy bunnies and frosted window frames. The project took her three weeks of cutting, measuring, sculpting and arranging enough pastel-colored candy corns, Peeps, robin's eggs, jelly beans, Necco wafers and chocolate rocks to ruin the strongest teeth, but the finished product was worth it, according to the second-grader. "Easter was coming up, and I wanted to make an Easter house," said Kayla, who entered the first Mid-Atlantic Cake Show and Wedding Cake Competition yesterday.

It is just before 7 on a blustery fall morning and students are rushing to class for a special kind of final exam in a special kind of school. They are dressed like chefs in their black checked pants and white tunics. Only their backpacks betray their status. It is the end of another five-week session for students at Baltimore International College's new Culinary Arts Center on the fringes of Little Italy. Today, the students will put everything they have learned on a dinner plate. Or, in the case of Justine Perkins, on a cake turner.

Susan Purdy's new book was no piece of cake.The baking teacher and author spent three years experimenting with recipes for low-fat baked goods. There were "unredeemable failures" that went directly from the ovens to the raccoons who live near her Roxbury, Conn., home. There were recipes that became obsessions, such as the lemon poppy seed cake that she tested 43 times before she felt it was worthy of the book."This book was much harder than the other books," Ms. Purdy says in classic understatement of the new "Have Your Cake and Eat It, Too" (Morrow, $25)

Anne Byrn, the woman who told us it is perfectly acceptable to bake using a cake mix, has a new book that extends that lesson to the latest baking fad - cupcakes. Cupcakes! From the Cake Mix Doctor (Workman Publishing Co., 2005, $13.95) contains 135 recipes for cupcakes and muffins, plus tips for how to decorate and display the little creations. Byrn points out that cupcakes have become oh so chic, selling in upscale boutiques in New York and Los Angeles for $5 apiece. Yet cupcakes are still the staple of school bake sales and children's birthday parties, and they are still one of the easiest desserts to make, especially with the help of cake mixes.

Planning a spring celebration with friends and family? Let them eat cake. Pie has its place, and so do ice cream, mousse, puddings and cobblers. But for versatility and appeal, nothing beats a cake. And with the abundance of decorating classes, books and gadgets, it isn't hard to make one that will impress your guests. One step toward making spectacular cakes is to learn the art of working with rolled fondant. If you recall your experiences with Play-Doh, you can decorate with the stiff icing that's frequently found these days on wedding and novelty cakes.
