Like a Christmas Present


The past few weeks I have been holding on to God’s promises a lot more and focusing on the good. At least trying to. I know i haven’t been posting …..but I have FINALLY realized that this blog can be an excellent release for me.  Life’s surprises are like Christmas presents sitting under the tree. You want to open them all  so badly before the right time. And when we do this, we see that the gift we were hoping for was not the same. We realize that we should have waited. When we wait and are patient with God we get better surprises than we could have ever imagined. Let’s think  about that. 

– The Princess ……


Yellow and Red Velvet Layer Cake with Strawberry Buttercream Filling

This WEEK has been crazy for your Princess! My duke of an Uncle downloaded over 15,000 megabytes in one week of staying at our house and shorted out our internet for the week.(“Um, I was downloading for the good of my family…..” Plus, my royal chariot got into a mini accident.( I swear I didn’t see that bus stop!)  But that didn’t stop this Princess from baking for the birthday of the month. My Dad’s birthday was wonderful. Full of cheer,joy and smiles. Anything for a royal man. Everything a birthday should be. The cake was another story. Full of stress,cracks,and burning, but in the end I got a hold of my baking skills and the cake turned out beautifully. Yellow and Red Velvet, who knew. But together these flavors melded together with the strawberry filling to make a beautiful and moist cake.It tasted like a chocolate dipped strawberry had an explosion with a vanilla cake. Fluffy,creamy,fruity. YUM!

1 Recipe for the Universal Batter Cake

1 Recipe for vanilla frosting of your choice

Strawberry Jam to taste

Vanilla Frosting to Frost

Whip up the Universal Batter divide it in two bowls and follow instructions for baking. For the strawberry buttercream beat in  about two to three tablespoons of Strawberry Jam to your buttercream. Frost as desired. I like spraying my layers with vanilla mist ( 1 cup water,1/4 cup sugar, 1/2 tablespoon good vanilla) to ensure they hold their moisture.Simple as ABC.



And Princess promises some delicious recipes this week and a challenge, maybe even a giveaway……….. .
