I made the trip to my parents house this past long weekend to celebrate a triumvirate of events. They all required delicious food, so that was just a bonus.
Saturday was the actual day of my Dad’s birthday, which he graciously allowed my niece’s party to take the lime light. HE got a DELICIOUS cake my aunt made for him, but I didn’t get any pictures of it… Dang it.
Katey is cute as hell…
for Katey’s birthday, my sister decided to make it an Easter theme. I mean, why fight the season? So, in my brotherly/uncley duty, I whipped up some cupcakes for my niece’s party, Easter themed and all. Have a look see!
A bunny bum… hehehe
They were quite tasty! I replaced the milk in the recipe with cream soda and they turned out quite tasty. The kids were adorable and quite willing to be photographed! I’d show you but I’m not certain all the parents would be ok with pictures of their children up in here…
Anyway! Sunday was Easter dinner. My family loves the food, let me tell you. Therefore every family dinner, hell EVERY dinner, we have is amazing. This year was spiral ham, a chicken casserole, beans, carrotts, and my aunt’s scalloped potatoes which have been featured in a previous blog! Drool worthy, I assure you.
I had been reading a magazine that had a delicious looking coconut cake on the cover. SOLD! So I busted out that recipe and made one for dessert. It was epic… not only in taste, but size! Three layers!!
I love cooking… OH and I start my baking course at George Brown College on April 22nd! THEN I will be a force to be reckoned with!
