Was it really more than a month ago that I updated my blog? Yes, it’s true. We’ve had a lot of changes come about recently in my family and the blog just wasn’t a priority.
A couple of friends emailed me today and asked if, “I was still cooking?” They were being cute of coarse- “Yes, I’m still cooking….all the time!”
1.) I have a one-year-old! Yes, Caston will turn ONE tomorrow. Wow…that is so hard to say. Can my baby really no longer be a baby?
2.) I have begun making cakes. I finally finished my professional cake classes (2 night classes a week) and started making cakes. It’s been a blast and a ton of work, but it was on my bucket list and I’ve got it knocked out. I promise to post some of my cakes is the future! (PHOTO: One of my first cakes for my mother-in-law)
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 box instant pudding
- ½ cup chocolate chips
- Butter instead of oil
- Milk instead of water
- Add vanilla flavoring
- Add extra butter flavoring
- Add other extract flavorings (lemon, mint, orange, almond)Add some spirits to the spice up the flavoring. Rum is always good, but my favorite is Irish cream or amaretto. You will substitute for half of the water called for in the mix.
- Do the same with coffee (strong). Great with chocolate!
- Grate in some citrus peel
