Well, I am going to have to make my daughter step away from the cook books – she keeps making these delicious cakes. Today’s cake is black cherry chocolate chip made to look like a watermelon, an idea she got from a recipe in the Betty Crocker magazine. She took a regular cke mix, added a packet of unsweetened black cherry kool aid, mini chocolate chips to it, and baked it in a round pan. After it cooled she frosted it with pre-made pink vanilla frosting and green frosting. She added matching sugar crystal sprinkles and it looks and tastes delicious.
This week I also tried my hand at making beaded bookmarks. They were so much fun to make that I made a whole bunch with plans to make more. I think in my next giveaway I will add a few of these to the pot. The first giveaway I did should be ending soon – I think midnight tonight – so I will be contacting the winner soon. Anyway, here are the bookmarks. A few match up to the characters in my books. 🙂
