Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

cake decorating

it was a cold and snowy day in midland today, so i decided to bake and decorate a cake.  i often bake two 8-inch round layers of cake, but only decorate one.  then, i save the second in the freezer for another day and time.

today, i selected my traditional icing recipe (maple cupcake icing) and a number 21 star decorating tip and icing bag.  i piped stars on the top of the cake and finished the cake with chopped walnuts.

this is a very easy technique and makes the cake appear quite professionally decorated.
