Way Too Long

Standard

It has been much too long since I posted here. The past three months have been overwhelming with schoolwork and just life in general. I’m sorry!

But I miss it. I miss blogging. Having started the blog around 8 months ago, I never though I would’ve said that. My goal from now on is tone more regular about blogging and my creative activities. I will also continue to do the weekly photo and writing challenges.

So, starting tomorrow I will tackle my first weekly photo challenge in months and we will go from there. Thanks for not leaving me:) and here’s a late valentines cake: white chocolate cake with cherry preserves as layers and a homemade whipped cream frosting. It was delicious.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Good Morning!

CIMG1144Now I know this closely mimics the cover photo for this challenge, but I still couldn’t help myself.  This was the breakfast I treated myself to one morning on vacation in Germany.  The woman gave me the strangest look when I asked for a giant slice of cake at 7am in the morning!  But, I will admit, it was a very good morning for me.  Somehow my toast with butter on this Saturday morning just doesn’t live up to that picture.

I wish everyone out there a great morning:)

Thank You!

Dear Followers,

Thank you very much for taking an interest in my blog.  This is a post dedicated to you and I baked a thank you cake in appreciation of your support.

About 3 months ago I started this blog with no idea what I was doing.  I did not have a lot of direction and I had never blogged before either, but I loved to create and wanted to share my work with others.  That desire led to the creation of skreative – my savior during a really tough summer for me.  I love thinking about post ideas and interacting with fellow bloggers.

The reason for this post is that I have officially reached 100 followers – a goal I never even dreamed of!  It is an exciting moment for me and I look forward to future blogging accomplishments:)

Now, onto the cake.  It is a chocolate mousse – vanilla layered yellow cake.  This is the first homemade cake recipe I have ever baked.  It turned out delicious!  The cake is a lot heavier than the boxed cake mix, but I feel like I am actually eating something solid.  I love how it ended up and I don’t think I will go back to my boxed cake mix again.  The chocolate mousse was delicious, fluffy, and not too sweet.  All in all, a complete success.  So although you can’t taste it unfortunately, I promise it was perfect!

Thank you again and enjoy your Wednesday:)
