Snowy Weekend & Cake Recipe

Our weekend started off to a small snowstorm. Don't you just love how snow looks just as it's falling? This time we got the soft powdery kind. It's so nice and peaceful outside when the snow is falling and hasn't been stepped (or peed) in yet.


It makes you think you're living in a black and white world when you look outside your window and only see white with hints of dark branches peaking out.



When I was little I used to look through my mom's old photos and used to think in the "olden days" everything was black and white. Literally - the world was black and white! Funny how a kid's mind works.



I still look through the old photos when I'm at her apartment. She doesn't get it, but I still love to look through them.


Wednesday we're supposed to be hit with another storm - this time even bigger. They're even thinking that schools may be closed. Just what I LOVE to hear!! Guess that means I'll have to go food shopping tomorrow with the rest of the city! Literally down to bare minimum over here in the food department.


So, I need some suggestions. The hubbs' birthday is this Friday and I need to make a cake. He's not into the decorated kind (my favorite part) but more into flavor. Last year I made him a root beer cake. It wasn't a big hit I have to say. He's really into flavors like coffee, chocolate, mocha and butterscotch. We couldn't be more opposite if we tried!


If you have any ideas, let me know. Would love to get the ingredients tomorrow while I'm out stocking up for the storm.

Hope you're having a great start to your week.

Stacey your photos are wonderful. It looks so beautiful. It doesn't snow here, so I miss all that.

As for cake, I'd probably make a big layered coconut cake, or coconut cupcakes.
