Crafty Tuesday - My Baby is Five!

So today really doesn't have a lot of crafting going on other than trying to finish my wood play set which took a blow last week when my husband left my Son and one other daycare child unsupervised while I was in bed with severe pain anyways I am salvaging that project. I have to put the faces on the fairies, hair and wings and then paint the pumpkin stacker as well I still have to get my felt crown made but the party isn't until Saturday so there is time. I picked up two more books from the library for next month the first one is Around the World in 80 tales it's a huge book but looks wonderful and then to compliment that I found Our World a National Geographic Child's First Picture Atlas.

Other than that the only other thing I managed to accomplish on this very crazy snowy day, seriously is Spring ever going to show up, is make birthday cake for my Son to share with his Daycare friends this afternoon. My girlfriend came to celebrate with her two kids and said the cake was so good is right up there in my "best list" and that I must share the recipe with you all.

1/2 Cup Sorghum flour

  4. In a separate bowl combine flours and whisk together until completely mixed. Then add to mixing bowl with the wet ingredients and blend together.

Here is a link to my current favorite frosting recipe I substitute the milk for rice milk or soy depending on what I have on hand.


  1. Hi Amanda...how much butter? I do not think its listed in the recipe. Or maybe its my dyslexia kicking in.

    Take care,

  2. Thank you so much Kirk I did omit it from the ingredients list...oops! It was a crazy day yesterday!
