We are living in the Polar Vortex right now. My youngest used some blue painters tape to tape intervals on the floor. He prefers to race like a herd of elephants while I work in my office below. Then he falls over in a coughing spell and wonders why. This weekend, I needed to escape my home for a spell to steer away the cabin fever. Since the kids don't have school till Wednesday (fingers crossed) I was looking for things to keep them busy. I was also attempting to purchase a cake at Target bakery, but my kids have nut allergies. I wasn't in the mood to read all the food labels, so I decided to make my own instead.
This is just a box cake mix and frostings. I used a heart shaped cookie cutter directly on the cake and then spooned in some red sprinkles. Added a little washi tape banner and waaaa- la. Done. I am not about making things "perfect". I like just making things, problem solving, trying things out and seeing what happens. This idea works for a cake, fixing a car that won't start, scraping the Polar Vortex interior car frost with a credit card or dancing to stay warm while pumping gas.
