We had a busy but fun weekend.
On Thursday night I got into the baking mood. I started with two layers of lemon cake, filled with lemon curd, topped with cream cheese frosting, raspberries and blueberries.
Then, for no particular reason, I ventured into making coconut cupcakes. I made cupcakes that couldn’t have been more coconutty if I tried…coconut milk in the cupcake batter, along with shredded coconut and coconut extract. Coconut extract in the frosting, and topped them off with a ton of coconut! I have four cupcake pans, and no patience, so I made one pan of HUGEMONGO cupcakes, and one half pan of regular size ones…made for a funny lookin’ platter!
These are our new housemates: Josie and Milo. My sister’s cat had a litter of kittens, and we got to bring two home yesterday.
Josie is crazy…
…to Milo’s mellow.
And to finish off, here are a few images from my underwater camera housing. I am excited to use it in Mexico, and while we had hot weather a few weekends back, we did a trial run!
This is Isabel…my darlin’ little niece!
This is Alec, her little bro…he was a stinker that day!
