First, today is Rob's and my fifth anniversary together! We've had a great relaxing day and even made a yummy dinner of chicken, mac & cheese, green beans, and dinner rolls. I whipped up a special dessert yesterday for the occasion, which brings me to my first (well, second chronologically) June project.
Delicious cupcakes! I used my secret Sin Cake recipe to make cupcakes and then got a vanilla buttercream frosting recipe from a friend. I tried to color it a much deeper blue, but it didn't seem to want to get any bluer than this. Next time I'm going to try for a pink frosting and experiment with some vanilla cupcake recipes. I'm really going to miss all my kitchen equipment when I am in Orlando. :-(
My second June project is this Hermione Cable & Eyelet hat that I knitted earlier this month. I love it! The picture makes it look red, but it's really a wine-like color. The ribbing turned out so-so, but the cables came out wonderfully. I'm very proud of them. Now I actually like knitting cables. Go figure! I'll definitely use this hat pattern again.
That's it for me today. Take care!
