30 Day Creativity Challenge – Day 1

…Happy New Year everyone!

Lorraine over at All About Words is encouraging all of us to get creative with her 30 day creativity challenge. Today I did something that I haven’t done in awhile and that is bake a cake from scratch. I was going to a New Year’s Levee today and it was the perfect excuse to pull out my new Kitchen Aid mixer and try a new recipe that I saw on-line.

Everything went very well until I tried to remove the two cake pans from the oven. As soon as I opened the door the rack fell and the pans slid sideways. I managed to remove the pans but the cake batter from the larger pan oozed out onto the counter. That could only mean one of two things; the oven wasn’t working or I accidentally turned the oven off when I put the cakes inside. Luckily it was the latter problem. I re-re-heated the oven and started again.

Thankfully the second time the cakes came out perfectly. I iced them with freshly whipped cream and put raspberries and blueberries on top. As a final touch I dusted them with icing sugar.A4895866-CCF9-4F1C-B149-185C0704BB9A

January Light – Day 1

thanks to Becky B for hosting this month’s #January Squares

All month the challenge is to post square photos of objects or scenes that have the word ‘light’ in them. My first entry is sunlight. Sometimes sunlight is a rare occurrence in January so when it comes out I’m outside with my trust camera or iPhone.
