So, here it is July already and, I don’t know about you, but I feel like the summer is flying by. Living in Minnesota, I tend to think about that a lot since the season doesn’t last too long. Do I mind that it currently feels like I’m living in a furnace and I’m going to melt? Noooo, for me, it’s all good.
Except for mosquitoes, I pretty much love everything that summer brings…the smell of fresh-cut grass, warm breezes, flip-flops, buzzing bees, flowers, and fruit. Ahhh, it’s all so wonderful!
I bought something last week that always makes me think of summer…strawberries. Some on plants…some in packages. I like strawberries. And since I also like cake, I made a cake with strawberries.
There’s someone else in our family who also really likes cake…or any kind of sweet for that matter. Let me give you a hint…she’s little, cute, and very mischievous. Yep, that would be my daughter. I have to tell you, she was sooo excited to eat this particular cake. I think the little strawberries and piles of whipped cream were calling her name.
When I went outside to take my photos, she asked me if I was going to do it down by the road so everyone could see my cake creation. Ummm, that would be a…no. Then, when I was finished and came back in the house, she had plates already set at the table and was yelling, “Take your places, everyone!” It was quite the event apparently.
I’m thinking that I might make that cake again tomorrow for the Fourth of July…maybe with blueberries too. It would be the perfect festive color combination. I know one or two people who would be happy about it.
