Our household was not too happy today. The Reds choked and lost the last 3 games to the Giants. We have been sick about it. We are dedicated fans who either watches or listens to every game possible. Bill and I have been all excited for the playoffs. It all ended today and now we will have to wait until next year :o(
The Milk glass cake stand in the picture was my birthday present from my Mother in law and Father in law. I had mentioned that I loved Milk Glass Cake plates a few weeks ago while looking at a cook book with my Mother in law and she started shopping for one for my birthday. I absolutely love it. My favorite part of the plate is the ruffle on the edge. If you look close you can see the clear glass on the edge of the ruffle.
I had to make a cake so I could share my birthday present with you so here I have a Cherry Lime Margarita Sunsational Cake. This cake was really moist and tart. This is one of Bill's favorite cakes. I have made different flavors of this cake and posted them on my blog before. This summer I happened to find Margarita jello and bought a box and it has been sitting in my cupboard waiting to be used. A flavor that I have taking a liking to this summer is Cherry Lime. I have in the fridge a carton of Minute Maid Cherry Limeade. I decided to make a Cherry Lime Margarita Sunsational Cake. Next time I make it I am going to use a cherry cake mix. I think it will give it more of a tart cherry taste. Also if I can not find margarita jello I will use lime jello.
