I hope that everyone is doing well and staying healthy. I apologize for getting this post out to you soooo late. I had intended to post this no later than Tuesday, but I had to go into the office on Tuesday and I had a horrible migraine Wednesday. I finally had time to type up the post on Thursday, but that was done after work and after picking up groceries. With everything that went on, I really wanted to post something this week.
First off, I want to show my planner spread for this week. This was a pay week for me, so I have my trusty Budget tracker (if you are interested in having this, comment below and I will add a downloadable version). I wanted to do some flowers and trees along with some rain showers because it’s April, however, I could not find rain showers in my sticker collection. I had umbrellas all day long, but I didn’t want umbrellas, I wanted rain. Someone needs to come up with rain shower stickers….or maybe I should make some of my own. I’m going to think on that. Anyway….here’s the spread.
Also, I wanted to show you guys the cake that I made for Easter. I didn’t have the huge gathering of family that I normally have because of the stay-in-place order with Covid-19, but I still made my dessert and homemade rolls.
The cake that we decided on this year (when I say we, I am talking about Babydoll and me) was a chocolate-lemon cake. It had two layers of lemon cake and three layers of chocolate and it had a very light lemon tasting icing.
Babydoll is not a huge fan of too much icing so I decided to go with a “naked” cake. Therefore, there was minimal (almost none) icing on the sides of the cake. It was amazing. Because I did not have a really strong lemon icing, the cake was never overwhelmed by one flavor.
I also decided to make homemade rolls, because who can have ham without rolls. I decided not to modify the amount of rolls, so I took a portion of the dough and made a “breakfast roll” with bacon and cheese.
I wish I would have rolled the bacon and cheese into the rolls like you would cinnamon sugar and butter, and I will do that next time, but these were still bomb.
I made rolls in the typical 2 knot style and then I did some the suggested by American Test Kitchen way by rolling the dough out into a rectangle and rolling it like it is a cinnamon roll, without the filling, then cut them.
You talking about good….mmmhhh, mmmhhh, mmmhhh. When going through my photos, I realized that I did not take pictures of the finished product, but trust me, they were so pretty and tasted so good.
