Yummy Cake and Cookies!!!

So, what do you do when you get stressed? I tend to bake and bake and bake a little more.

I saw a 12 layer cake recipe on this blog:

So, I decided to make it for a good friend's birthday. It was rather involved and ended up being a 11 layer cake because I had to sample a layer. Yummy!!!

This was a serious cake!! It felt like it was 10 pounds!!

Then today I had to make a dessert for my son's school - since the teachers have conferences the parents make meals to take in for them in the evening. I made 80 sugar cookies with the school initial and mascot. I love making sugar cookies!!! They are so much fun!!!

Tomorrow is a big day for Blake. He has a doctor's appointment. Please keep him in your prayers!!

Love Always,

Cake Pops

I came across this idea on another blog when I was looking for something to make for a friend of mine for her birthday. She is an awesome baker and just an ordinary cake would not do.

Here is the link for the directions:

Hers are soooo much better looking than mine!!

Basically all it is, is cake that has been baked crushed up with cream cheese frosting. Make that into balls and then cover with chocolate melt.

They did taste pretty yummy!!!
Thanks for stopping in!!

Crazy Coasters

Well, I got this idea from Jenn. She and her kids made these at Christmas. I thought it was a great idea!! So, my boys made a few. So, we bought the .12 tile at Menards and the special acrylic markers from Michaels. The boys created pictures on the tile.

They had to bake for 35 minutes after they dried for 24 hours. I had a bunch of the felt pads so we put those on the bottom. They are cute and will make a great little gift. Thanks Jenn!!!
Love Always,
