Simplify 2012 ~ Valentine's Day
I missed this week's party -sorry :/ but it gets so busy around the holidays
here in my home. Sometimes, time gets away from me.
I decided to make a Valentine's Day Coconut Cake for my sweets ~ all 5 of them!
I typically make my sweets from scratch but I had a limited amount of time so
I used boxed cake mix -GASP- I know I know but it actually tasted pretty good.
I didn't know Duncan Hines made boxed coconut cake mix so I gave it a whirl. Since
I was on a roll with the whole store bought stuff, I used a can of vanilla frosting to top it off.
Talk about keeping it simple right?
I did add coconut to the top & candles. =D Landon & Michaela must have thought it
was their birthdays again or something lol. I mean hey around here it's always
some one's birthday.
I didn't have any red colored sugar so I improvised
A few drops in a bowl of sugar, mixed with a fork worked well enough.
I sprinkled it on top
we had to fight off little hands that wanted to dig right in.
I think Landon liked it...
every crumb of it.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day!
Hey just wondering if I can get some suggestions on the quickest & most user friendly
photo editing program. Since picnik is going away soon I need to find a program
that I can edit, re size, etc photos without taking a ton of time. Just curious if any of
you had any recommendations?
Thanks in advance!
