Raspberry Whipped Cream Cake

Not much to say. Just a couple of off focus photos of a cake I made for a tea my mom was hosting. I used Rose Levy's whipped cream cake recipe. It's a great recipe and I'll definitely be making it again. Hopefully next time I make it I can get some better photos. I'll even show you the pretty layers inside.whip cream cakeWhip Cream Cake

yarn love

malbrigogorgeous yarnsock knitting
Purchased this beautiful yarn this past weekend and am loving working with it. The color is stunning! I am finally making a pair of socks! I have wanted to for the longest time but have kept putting them off because they can be so time consuming. Iv'e realized I'm a knitter who likes pretty quick projects. So far the sock knitting is going okay. The needles are just so tiny! I'm not use to such dainty little things. When I get frustrated I feel as if I could just snap them in half. Even though this kind of knitting has been frustrating at times it also has been very enjoyable. I guess I just have mixed feelings. We will see how I feel when I complete both socks. Hopefully that will be sometime soon.

Apple Pie

Finally did some baking and made a couple pies last week. I was having a hard time getting into the baking mood in the heat of summer. But, I really don't mind turning on the oven now since the temperature has dropped quite a bit. DSC_0019-001DSC_0021-001
Unfortunately I didn't get a photo of the pie after it came out of the oven. But it sure was nice and flaky. I think i'll be making lots more pies this season!

Happy Sunday!
