In increasing order, things that are difficult:
Walking in the snow.
Walking in the snow uphill.
Walking in the snow uphill with a knee injury.
Walking in the snow uphill with a knee injury carrying a cannoli cake roll.
It was difficult but the cake roll (and the ingredients for the whipped cream icing) made it successfully to the office. A light sponge cake rolled and filled with a cannoli cream and covered with orange scented whipped cream, chopped pistachios and mini chocolate chips.
And yes, it is as good as it sounds.
