|my first attempt at coconut cake|
This cake was inspired by this version. I used a box cake (the horror!) and used coconut oil in place of butter, it came out quite light and fluffy, then made the cream cheese frosting, I like less sugar and more tang from the cream cheese and bought the coconut flakes and tada! Fancy and delicous....I forgot how much I love to bake.
I also went to a quilt show, and I was really inspired by this garden themed quilt that combined applique and embroidered panels. I am excited to experiment more with embroidery soon.
I have been thinking about the little things that make me happy about sewing and baking.
This is what I've got so far.....still playing with colors of course. I want to do a series of these and I plan to start the next one very soon.....in between my other ideas.
The most difficult and fin part was coming up with the patterns for the fabric for "happy"
The H and Y might still change not sure I'm completely satisfied with them as they are.
What makes your heart happy?
