Do y'all read Craft Gossip?
It's a daily collection of short blogs that encompasses almost every aspect of crafting.
I loves it!
So many ideas, so little time.
The other day I stumbled across this entry:
Well, I do love my pound cake.
I think I make a mighty fine one indeed.
But look what Toni Dash of Boulder Locavore did to her pound cake!
Isn't that pretty?
I just had to make this for BillHubby in honor of
Yucky Mushy Stuff Day
St Valentine's Day.
Neither of us ever make a fuss about this "Hallmark Cards Holiday."
But BillHubby has a sweet tooth.
I used two box cakes mixes.
One Red Velvet and one Devil's Food.
I did stray on one aspect.
I didn't cut the red cake into slices.
I used my cookie cutter to cut one
big ol hunk of heart shaped cake.
It was awkward.
It worked but I think if I decide to bake this again -
and I probably will - I will invest in one of those heart shaped baking tubes.
BillHubby also thinks a cake isn't done until it is frosted.
I used canned Cream Cheese Frosting.
Happy St Valentine's Day!!
