"That they (the older women) admonish the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed." Titus 2:4-5

Recipe of the Week: Birthday Cake


My daughter's birthday was last week. It's hard to believe my baby is already 2 years old! The cake I made last year was.... cute, but kind of quirky (that's supposed to be a caterpillar, could you tell?):
So I set out to try something new this year. Luckily, I tore a page out of a Parents magazine that had some good ideas and right before I needed to make it, I found a great post on how to make a Rainbow Cake. How fun! Everyone loved it! I used a Betty Crocker French Vanilla cake I got from Walmart and divided the batter into 6 bowls. I added food coloring and poured them into 2 9" round pans. I iced it with this cream cheese frosting (the naughty one!) and added M&M's of different sizes to the outsides. This cake was definitely a big hit!
