of baking, knitting and super bowls

I love taking pictures of ingredients used in baking. Eggs are too much fun. Go figure. The butter was actually for a chocolate cake (with Andes mint chips and a butter cream frosting) that is now history with no image of the finished product. Too bad. I have it on good authority that it was tastey so I'll be making it again!

The eggs contributed to this lovely confection--a Honey Bun cake with a cinnamon glaze. Yum. Sunday morning just wouldn't be Sunday morning without cinnamon wafting throughout the house. Happily, there is quite a bit left.

Super bowl festivities took place at my sisters' home. We drowned our sorrows in cake and ice cream. Sigh. Lest you think knitting was completely abandoned this weekend, I'm hear to tell you it was not! The Leyburns are done...an official FO post will show up later. The second Holidazed sock is well underway, and I worked a few more rounds of the Papaver Sok.

Wishing you a sweet week!
