Caramel Cake

December 13, 2015 Leave a comment

Yesterday was my mother-in-law’s birthday and I decided to make a homemade caramel cake for her. We bought one from Kroger last year but it was disappointing.

Pinterest comes in handy when looking for great recipes. I came across the recipe by Grandbabycakes a while back actually, and decided to go for it.

It did take some time but it was really good!


If you love caramel, this is a recipe to try. The cake part tastes a lot like pound cake to me. It’s very rich.

Enjoy and Happy Holidays!


Sweater update

I’ve been busy giving myself carpal tunnel this weekend, but making progress on my sweater project. I read a good blog on stretches for knitters, which I definitely needed!
Sweater2I started on the next block of color last night before heading to bed. With snow flurries most of the day yesterday, it was a perfect day to spend knitting.

My son’s birthday was yesterday, too, and he was home from college for the weekend. We had grilled steaks and corn, salad, vegetables, and rolls. He requested the same cake I made for him last year, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cake. This year I did it in a Bundt cake instead of cake layers. He had a huge piece with ice cream. I made it most of the way through a medium-sized piece but it was too rich for me to finish!


I think I’ll make something similar for my husband’s birthday, but in German Chocolate, maybe with some Mounds Bars. That’ll ensure that I don’t eat more than a piece since I’m not a fan of coconut!

Still looking for fabric for my Wingback chairs I’m reupholstering. Hancock’s was having a sale but it’s still about $50 a chair, if I’m able to find fabric for around $10/yard. Most of the fabrics I really like are much more than that! Any tips from experienced fabric buyers out there on this problem? I would welcome help!
