Confetti

Happy Friday my special peeps!  Hope your week has been a good one.  I've had a mix of home days and work days this week, all of them good.  Plus we've had some great rain here, and even a thunderstorm! Exciting.

I've had some fun playing around with an idea.  Took a few minutes to cut out some fusible applique letters and shapes.  I'm hoping that it turns out as cute in real life as it seems in my head.   After running some errands I scooped up my little  mother, it was her birthday yesterday, and brought her over for some dinner and cake!  I ended up making  angel food cake, selfishly my favorite.  She couldn't decide what she wanted.  Back in the day I always had angel food cake on my birthday... only not the plain kind, the 'confetti' kind, which was angel food cake with sprinkles cooked in it so it was polka dotted. Came packaged in a mix, with the separate little sprinkles, like you couldn't just do it on your own.

WHAT THE WHAT???? THEY STILL MAKE IT!!! I was hoping that I'd at least find some old 60's graphics and found this!!!   Wow. I'll be on the lookout now.  Holy cow. 

Ok, back to the studio today. IT'S ALMOST MARCH.  Yowsers.  Have a good weekend everyone! xo

Your love of polka dots is apparently a life long obsession. :) Can't wait to see your applique project!

I saw that cake mix at my grocery store last week! I've had a lifelong obsession with sprinkles. Don't they make everything taste better? Maybe I can make it during this weekend's 6" snowstorm.

My mom also always made me a angel food cake for my birthday.

She would add drops of food color to the batter and fold it in, just a little bit, no overmixing and then pour it in the tube pan.

The end result was ribbons of color in your cake. And different each time. The key really is not to over mix. Sooo pretty!

Happy birthday to your mom!

On some of my birthdays my mom would make an angel food cake with pink icing. I've never liked angel food cake but I would eat my piece and never say anything. I didn't mention it to her until recent years.

I remember my cousin always had that cake for his birthday and his mom always put dimes in the cake too.
