Strawberry Cake

This cake is so addicting I made two of them in as many days and they are both gone! The recipe is Strawberry Country Cake from a Barefoot Contessa Cookbook, but you can also find the recipe online here. It makes two 8″ cakes, but you could probably use one 9″ deep cake pan and cut either 2 thick layers or make a 3 layer cake that way. The cake recipe was foolproof and flawless for me–I followed it to the letter.  I did, however, eyeball the heavy cream and strawberries AND I added sliced bananas to the middle layer because I had some ripening ones on hand.

Yummy and pretty easy. It keeps well in the fridge overnight–doesn’t get soggy at all. I can’t attest to keeping it any longer because it didn’t last more than 1 1/2 days in our house!

Fifth Ave Floral Invitation

This was the final version of a shower invitation I made. I couldn’t post it until now so as not to ruin the surprise!

Card size is 5 1/4″ square. Background layer is Kiwi Kiss, followed by Apricot Appeal, and the top is Whisper White. I printed the invitations on my printer and then stamped the flowers from the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set in three colors of ink: Kiwi Kiss, Apricot Appeal, and Cameo Coral. In the centers of the flowers, I dotted some glue using the 2 way glue pen and then sprinkled on Dazzling Diamonds glitter.

Envelopes used were Stampin’ Up! Medium Square Envelopes.
