Today’s confession is written by Ashley Wallace. Ashley is a friend of mine and when she recently found out I was dealing with a lot of the same issues, she decided to share her story as well.
Run a sharp knife under hot water to cut this layered cake into neat slices.
Update: Almost two months after this post was written, I found out I was pregnant! I am due late June, 2015.
This is a fairly easy project once you have the tools you need. And the most fun part is that you can create any kind of design that your heart desires! I wanted to create a return address stamp that has an interesting font. I did not show that for privacy reasons, but the effort you put into it is the same. So I created a “C” for my last initial and some little arrows (because I am all about arrows right now).
While visiting with family recently, I had the chance to take a break from the cooking and enjoy some of my mother-in-law’s delicious meals. It was quite the treat, if I do say so. When she mentioned that she would be making homemade meatballs, I was intrigued to see how she would be making them. I have never made meatballs before, well, meatballs that didn’t involve taking them out of the freezer and cooking them in a pan. These meatballs were fresh, easy to make and she was done in no time!
During an invitation to Avery Island, I got the chance to meet the people behind Tabasco and spent 3 full days experiencing all there is to offer on that amazing island and surrounding areas. I had the chance to visit the good ole’ country store located right on the island. While I will share more stories from my amazing trip soon, there was something I wanted to share today. Something taaasty.
Just because it’s your child’s birthday, doesn’t mean you have to spend an arm and a leg on a fancy cake, especially if you’ve already spent a fortune on decorations. From DIY party decorations to adorable party favors for the kids to take home, it’s easy to come up with a theme that will please both you and your child especially if you take the time to browse the Betty Crocker Birthday Hub for your inspiration. You can find a lot of great ideas on the website. Not everything has to be a specific cartoon theme either, you can base your child’s party off their favorite color or animal although sometimes they may have a specific request like a Hello Kitty Birthday Cake! My favorite thing to do is browse the internet and cookbooks for party inspiration.
