I was zipping through Lowes the other day, and the latest issue of Southern Living caught my eye. The cover was so beautiful, an issue all about cakes and pies, totally spoke to me. I grabbed it, paid way too much for it, and have loved poring over it ever since. The cover recipe is for a Lemon-Orange Chiffon Cake. The cake is made with orange zest and fresh orange juice. I got that far, made the cake I mean, and then read the frosting part more closely. It wants you to serve this orangey cake with a lemony orange frosting. But I disagreed, I felt like that would've been too much. I felt like the frosting would've stolen from the flavor of the cake. So I whipped up some Fork Cake Frosting and threw it on, and garnished with a little bit of orange zest. I decided it would be called an Orange Cream Cake. And I ate like 3 pieces of it. It was really, really good!
The dress-ups were starting to become the very worst thing ever. So, <94 cents x 26 little bins + 1 Sharpie, got me organized. Each one has the dress-up and its accessories inside. Top row are the dress-ups that have accessories too big for the bins, so that the too-big accessory can sit on top of its corresponding bin (or lean to the side of it, in the case of Kylo Ren). The kids have started checking them out, like they're library books. One of about a dozen projects I've been working on, done! Sharing because maybe this idea will work, and be a relief, for someone else too.
