My Tim Tam Adventure

One of the things I enjoyed most about growing up in the military was the ability we had to travel the world and visit so many different countries. The world is a beautiful place and like my dad always said, “To have a friend you must be a friend”, and he always managed to find …

The Taste Of Summer

Finally the fresh fruits and veggie stands have produce in them! Well, sort of fresh. It has been raining so much here that the farmers haven’t been able to grow much.

Mother’s Day 2014 ~ Cupcake Bouquet

Most people make something with chocolate and …

Cake Genealogy

My Grand Daughter Alexandra is turning 1 year old! So crazy how fast the time flies by. In my last blog titled “Autumn’s Cake”, I spoke about the fact that I had also made the wedding cake for Autumn’s mommy and daddy, and showed you the pictures. Many of the couples who’ve I made wedding cakes for in …

Autumn Cupcakes

Mmmm, fall flavors are the best! Apples and cinnamon, cranberries and turkey, pumpkin and nutmeg. There’s pumpkin everything! So, in honor of the season, I was inspired to create a new cupcake. It’s an apple-filled spice cupcake frosted with a maple buttercream frosting. It turned out really yummy. Then of course I had to bake an …

Wow! June was busy and July is looking like it’s going to continue the trend. My youngest daughter graduated, it was the highlight of the month. I am so happy that’s finished. After many tears, uncountable prayers, teeth gritting, and much more grey hair, all six of my kids are done with school. The next …
