Seriously Delicious Things

I have a sweet tooth. So does my mother-in-law, who has been visiting us from England for the last six weeks. We are together all day every day... and have been a bit dangerous in the kitchen. Dangerous to our waistlines, of course. Tea and cake makes everything better!!

For Annelie's first birthday, we got a little out of control, but man oh man, was it WONDERFUL!!! I made my famous (well, famous to me at least) brownie bites, which are brownies made in my gorgeous mini bundt pan and then smothered in my homemade cherry flavored frosting and topped with enormous amounts of chocolate candy sprinkles and a marachino cherry. Unbelievably sinful!

My MIL made Annelie's cake which was a sponge with a rich layer of raspberry and buttercream in the middle, and then topped with a lemon glaze (in a pretty feathery pattern). I decorated with a monogrammed A (Annelie is so chic!) and some flowers, with roses going around the whole thing.

Yeah... I'm not a cake decorator.... But I thought it was pretty.

And pretty delicious, too. Just ask my waistline.

This looks so yummy! Cooking is so much more fun when you have someone to keep you company and you have the time to play around with things.
