lol... with the only option left being homemade frosting and regular chocolate cake, I found this simple (and delicious!!!) recipe on cooks.com, and grabbed a bag of coconut from the place where we found the above sign....
|COCONUT CREAM FROSTING|
1 c. coconut, toasted and cooled
3 oz. pkg. cream cheese
1/4 c. butter
3 c. sifted powdered sugar
1 tbsp. milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Toast coconut and cool. Cream butter with cream cheese; alternately add sifted powdered sugar, milk and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Add half the coconut. Frost cake. Top with rest of coconut.
So I got right to the business of toasting the coconut... and guess what! Coconut is highly flammable! Who knew!
Chloe is becoming quite the picky little eater. she basically likes apples, banannas, bright green foods (she picked all the spinach out of the new chicken alfredo pierogie soup at olive garden and ate it! It was precious!) and ketchup. She loves ketchup and most other red sauces, but none as good as ketchup!!Here's a few random pictures of chloe eating this weekend...
Here's a few click-to-enlarge pics of my new white walls, in case you're interested!! :)
Well, Chloe's dressing the puppy in her clothes, so I gotta go, but I'll try to get a few pics up from Halloween later today!
