Recipe Day:Lemonade Layer Cake

Lemonade Layer Cake
Was supposed to post this yesterday but totally spaced, so it's just a recipe day instead of "Recipe Monday"
Lately I've been on this new recipe kick! I'm loving trying out new recipes! Pinterest has such a wide selection of wonderful recipes linked that I just want to try them all! So I'm trying out at least 1 new recipe a week, of course some weeks I try more :)
I pinned this recipe months ago and finally made it, definitely a keeper! We all loved it and it was the first layered cake I made that didn't break...very exciting for me! So if I could do it, so can you :) it's fool proof! Just click on the name of the cake and it will take you to the recipe!

Hope you see this!!!

I just got a sweet message from a gal about my "Perfect Marriage" Sign and I get messages about it quite frequently, so I thought I would just do a quick post to let anyone that see's this know, the signs are available in my etsy shop HERE. They are 17$ each and are 10x11 inches in size (Shipping is $9). If you don't have an etsy account message me and I'll paypal you an invoice. Thanks!

To the gal that sent me a message this morning - I hope you see this, I was on my phone and my finger slipped and hit the delete button and I have no way to retrieve it. I hope to hear from you again soon!!!

Recipe Monday: homemade vanilla!

Over the weekend I picked up a bottle of white rum (it's supposed to be about as flavorless as vodka) and was able to start the process of making my own jar of vanilla!!! I thought I'd have enough for two jars but the one bottle filled the one quart mason jar perfectly. 
I bought my vanilla beans at Costco about a month ago and was excited to use them in a fun recipe! Soon after I saw this post on "our best bites" for homemade vanilla and thought it would be so cool to try making my own! I thought it would be fun to use it as Christmas gifts like they did but I never did order more beans. So I am happy to try it out this time and maybe next year I'll try making more for friends :)
I'll be sure to post how it turns out once it's ready to use next month! For those of you that never knew vanilla was made with alcohol, I didn't know either until a friend made some last year! Most real vanilla extracts are 35-40% alcohol, never knew that before! Hope everyone is having a happy Monday!!!
