DVD Review

I recently received a review from Susan of Keepers of the Faith. I was very humbled by her kind words about my DVD. My husband and I led a Keepers group for about 7 years. I greatly admire all the work that the Zakula's have done to encourage families!

Basic Cake Decorating Review

My grandchildren had earned their cake decorating badge in their Keepers at
Home Club, and they all just loved cake decorating. When I saw Kathy's DVD
on cake decorating, I thought it might be just the thing to further their
interests and increase their skills. I was not disappointed! Kathy did an
excellent job in both explaining and demonstrating the skills. Kathy's DVD
will help anyone to learn to decorate a cake. It was well done!

Easy Lemon Cake w/Pansies

This cake was made with a yellow box mix. I added about 1-2 tsp of lemon flavoring, baked it in a bunt pan. Pan must be greased and floured.

Mix a small amount of milk, 10X sugar and lemon flavoring to make a glaze, drizzled it over the cake after it is cooled. The key is not to make the glaze too thin, it takes a VERY small amount of milk (or water) to do the job.

Garnished with pansies and mint from the front porch.
