Today was a busy day to start out the New Year. There was plenty of laundry and cleaning to do, but also a lot of baking and crafting. I stated and finished a hat. It was with bulky weight so it didn’t take long at all:
I also baked a Guinness cake for the husband totally from scratch with homemade cream cheese frosting:) That is made up of two bricks of cream cheese, a stick of butter, a teaspoon of vanilla, and two cups of powdered sugar. It is so tasty. I think it is much better than store bought. I am glad that I forgot to buy some today and made it from scratch instead.:
I know it doesn’t look great. My cakes and baked items never look great, but they always taste good. It is a dream of mine to open a yarn store one day. In the back there would be a tea/coffee shop with pastries. I would bake them. Of course their appearance is lacking. I have even taken cake decorating classes, but I really lack the patience. I still need to win the lottery to make this happen so for now it will stay a dream.
I also tried out a pot of tea that I got for Christmas. It is a flowering tea pot with flowering tea. Today I had some Jasmine tea. It seems that I can reuse the flower about 3 more times. Isn’t it pretty? It was tasty too!
And last, I finally started to weave with the loom that I got for Christmas. It took me a while to figure it out, but I think it will go well from here:)
