Checkerboard Cake

The Wednesday before Thanksgiving, when four of the six grand ones were here, we tried our hand at making a checkerboard cake.  We had no reason to believe it would turn out at all – before we put icing on it, we christened it The Dr. Seuss Cake.  It was crazy looking.  But after caulking it together with icing – and it took a batch of homemade icing and TWO cans of store bought frosting, it was quite the hit when we took it to the Smith Family Christmas party on Saturday 🙂img_20161125_130616

I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your website, but what if you added a post title that makes people desire more? I mean %BLOG_TITLE% is a little vanilla. You might look at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create post headlines to get people to click. You might add a video or a related pic or two to grab readers excited about what you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it could make your blog a little bit more interesting.|
