Icing/Sunday Sampler

Sunday Sampler

While the world is trying to ice up outside this morning here in Mid-Missouri, I’m going to show you a little recipe from yesterday. It was the hubby’s birthday and I wanted to change up the typical cake result. What better way than with the frosting??

The recipe below is from a 1st edition of America Cooks, my Etsy find and a wonderful reference in case you care to look one up. Be prepared to pay. They are highly sought after and I am grateful to have found mine.

Feelin Frosty

Before the toppings begin though, you naturally have to have the cake. So, whipped it up, poured it into 3 pans, and baked it.

Love- The Main Ingredient

Do you know how much a difference an extra cake layer can make? Trust me, it elevates flavor to a new level. No pun intended.


Very sloppy appearance here but I had only a teeny window of opportunity for the picture taking. Had to work fast to keep the cake layers from sliding and breaking.


And there you go, a little glazed on the sides but it didn’t disappoint the samplers. Mission accomplished, a keeper recipe and another birthday for the books. Have a wonderful rest of your Sunday!



BRGR/Thursday Doors

When a 3-year-old writes notes to “His One True Love”, you deliver. No hesitating. No batting the eyes. You make it happen.

This Thursday Door is where we entered to our meeting place.

Not the best lighting when someone’s headlights are blazing behind you.

BRGR in Prairie Village, Kansas is a pretty cool place that happened to have an unusual door for a strip mall location. Points scored straight off.

BRGR (2) The outdoor seating is vacant in this pic, but when we arrived the tables were loaded up with the warmer temps we’ve been having. They even have the fire lit. Very cozy.

The name of the dive was accurate in what they specialize in. Burgers. Catering to those who need the g-free version(my daughter & hubster) was another high scoring point of the night.


Notes delivered and another successful Doors venture complete.
