in a burst of susie homemaker energy on sunday afternoon i made carrot cake cupcakes with cream cheese icing. after 1 1/2 hours of alternating between the kitchen and my art room, there were 48 cupcakes which gave me 22 to take to work and 22 to send to work with bill. plus i saved these 2 back for our sunday evening tv-watching treat! at work we rationalized eating the decadent icing by saying at least we were getting our veggies in the carrot cake. smile! bill and i both agreed that we enjoyed sharing at work so much that we will make this a monthly thing. our october treat will be welsh cakes made from an old williams (bill's mom) family recipe. i promise to share the recipe later next month!
i've been practicing on my photoshop skills. i used the liquify tool to create the fun pattern around the plate above. when jenna was here saturday she and i played with the distort feature to twirl and pinch photos of family members. she thought it was too too funny! and grandma did too!
i'm off to take a bike ride in the cool autumn air! what are you doing to enjoy these lovely evenings?
