And I have been busy - in a good way :-)
We had Independence day and I made this cake
It was a simple white pound cake (http://www.playinghouseblog.com/2010/02/perfect-pound-cake.html) which I divided into 2 batches - 1 remained white the other I added blue food coloring.
I also made this - with the Hershey's Perfectly Chocolate Cake (http://www.hersheys.com/recipes/recipes/detail.asp?id=184) and decorated it wit \h a dove of peace (AMEN). The frostinf is whipped ganache.
Furthermore we have these amazing!! apple bars - they are seriously the best I have ever made
The recipe is http://www.ourbestbites.com/2009/05/apple-streusel-bars.html and I highly advise you to keep it. They are serioulsy terrific.
And told my kids I love them with home-made burgers - straight from the heart :-)
