Last blog post i told you guys about a really easy cake that looks so pretty and fancy...
Well... here it is!
It's my daughter's birthday today, and i made it for her... from scratch.... !
uhhh... well almost from scratch...
ok.... fine, it's not actually not from scratch at all
Duncan Hines Lemon Cake mix, and Duncan Hines creamy lemon icing...
I did grow the pansies though~!`
just bake a bundt cake
put a little container for water in the middle
pluck some pansies and put them in the water
and that's it
My daughter is a trip, she immediately grabbed one of the pansies off the cake and plopped it in her mouth and ate it right in front of me...
I don't know why she did that...
i mean, it's ok to eat pansies
and,it's fine that she did
but i probably would have stuck my finger in the icing
one thing Ellie is not, is boring!
When she was a kid, she ate a red ant and a black ant... she just wanted to try them
She told me red ants are saltier...
I still have a residual eye twitch from her teenage years...
But if i had to go into battle, she's the one i'd take with me!
This is her now...
she's pretty darn cute
and Loves animals
she has stopped traffic more than once saving a stray dog
She has lot's of boobs
Happy Birthday Ellie!
Anyway on to the giveaway...
Soooo, the weirdest thing happened...
I received sooo many really sweet emails about the hydrangea painting giveaway..
it made me feel guilty that i can't do a painting for each one of you really sweet special friends...
One of them was from Lou Cinda @ Tattered Hydrangeas
She talked about how much she loved hydrangeas, and planted them in her yard, and carried them at her wedding...
and i thought wouldn't it be funny if she won the giveaway...
anyway, i put all the names in my pink hat, and took a photo of it with "Bushy" (of course)
(you can see more about "bushy" in the previous post)
and then i took four names from the hat
and laid them on the counter
and grabbed Mr. Fractured who was clueless about what was going on... and eating nachos
I asked him to draw a name from the four folded peices of paper
and he pulled out a name
and it was Lou Cinda @ Tattered Hydrangeas..!
That just kinda blew my mind
it's like it was meant to be
So Lou Cinda, yay for you! and send me your address!
because you sure as heck were meant to have this painting!
