Huzzah! The fruits of labor have finally been brought down to me from the Heavens!
A couple of weeks ago, I started growing a dill plant straight from the seed! I almost never start from a seed, and when I do, it usually doesn’t work. I’m so excited! I have a bunch of other seeds for different plants that I’m going to start to grow this afternoon. They’re easy things like other spices, microgreens, strawberries, and of course flooooooooowers! Starting a garden really makes it feel like Spring!
It was my dad’s birthday last Wednesday, so me, my brother and my mom made him a cake. A strawberry lemon cake, to be precise. Now I will teach you how to make this elegant dessert.
For the cake I just used a Betty Crocker mix of Lemon Cake and followed the box directions.
Home-Made Cream Cheese Icing:
2 Packages of Philidephia Low Fat Cream Cheese
1 Stick of Butter (or 1/4 of a cup)
A medium to large bowl
A Stirring utensil such as a whisk
Directions, Put cream cheese and butter into the bowl and stir until well blended. Spread icing mixture onto the top of the cake. Place strawberries all over the place. Slice into pieces and serve. This cake is good hot or cold, I would prefer cold, though.
