Rose Cake

I just got back from my honeymoon in St. Lucia.  What an amazing place to visit!  I have a special post that I am going to do about all the desserts I ate while I was there, but that is for another day.  I am totally exhausted with unpacking and laundry.  It was a LONG travel day yesterday!  And now, the Pittsburgh Steelers game is on.  Enough said!

So anyways, for now... here are some pictures of a cake I made before I left.  Hope you enjoy!

Be sure to check back soon for my St. Lucia post!  Then, I will be starting my Christmas posts soon!  I will of course be making some Christmas cookies, but am also going to do a series of edible gifts that you can give to your family, friends and coworkers for the holiday season.  I have LOTS to share with you!

Every year, I make gift baskets for my family holding lots of goodies.  I am continually searching for new and exciting gifts.  I mean... my family probably does not want the same thing every year!  Although I do have a few things that are ALWAYS in my baskets!  Stay tuned for more!  I am very excited about this... I hope you are too!  


  1. Looking forward to your post on edible gifts! Should I consider it a preview of things to come? :-)

    I'm hesitant to share my secrets, but if you're still looking for ideas to make or to share with your readers, here are two good discussion posts on the topic on Chowhound:

    (I posted on one of the threads. See if you can guess which post is mine!)

  2. You may be lucky and get a basket from me for Christmas :-)

  3. First congratulations on your wedding!!! I absolutely love this cake you made and can't wait to see your posts about the desserts. Thanks so much for sharing your ideas!!!!

  4. Thanks so much! I will be starting the edible Christmas gift series in the next few days so keep an eye out!!
