Our first day of 2016 was filled with fun celebrating my husbands birthday. Everyone home, presents opened, relaxing in front of TV, a game of Monopoly. This is the card I made for my husband, it's the start of many star/sunburst cards you will see this month. Yes, I am going to try my hardest to get my paper and card supplies in order and use up the scraps. So will be on the look out for any card designs that help me do this. This style of card is quite fun and I have made four with another 6 cut out and ready to be put together. Brilliant as it covers all my birthdays in January.
This is the birthday cake I made….a bit of flop, although it tastes nice. For the past year we have been really reducing the sugar we have and I have been baking with rice malt syrup in lieu of sugar. So thought with all the extras we have been eating over Christmas I would try to bake a slightly healthier cake. This is a Vanilla Cake made with coconut flour and icing made with cashew nuts.
Well this is what I thought I was making. :-) I really think its the camera angle. lol
My version does taste nice but I do not for the life of me know how the white icing was made from the ingredients that were listed. I have read them over and over.

Edit: Two days later and the cake is all gone, my husband didn't even offer to share the last piece…..so it wasn't too bad and I definitely will try it again.
Have a great day everyone.
