Back in this post, I showed you pics of my Clown Puke Cake and gave the recipe. Well, I made the cake again for Memorial Day only this time I colored it red, white, and blue. It turned out really well. I did try to make each layer different but somehow I ended up with a huge red center anyway. Go figure.
I used a different buttercream icing this time - with unsalted butter instead of shortening - and it came out GREAT! I made it very slowly to make sure I got the right consistency and didn't add to much milk.
I decorated the top of the cake with red and blue colored sugar even though none of my family members like sprinkles. I thought it looked pretty no matter what they said.
I also wanted to share a bracelet that I bought on etsy. I got it from Lanmon (she has more really cool looking patriotic bracelets in her shop!)
I ordered it too late to get it by Memorial Day but I did get it today. It's really pretty and fits perfectly. I LOVE these bead crocheted bracelets. You don't have to worry about a clap, they're lightweight and slip right over your hand.
I anticipate getting lots of compliments on it because it's so cool looking.
These are Lanmon's pics that I'm using - just to give credit where credit is due. :)
I'm building up a slow collection of these bracelets. I want to be able to wear 2-3 at a time as if they were bangle bracelets.
