I'm No Cake Boss (But He's Definitely a Brewmaster) :)

Those of you who know me well may know that I am not the best cook in the world. Sure, I can throw together yummy appetizers (cheese dip counts, right?), but I've never been much of a baker. However, I think that all has changed. In fact, I've done quite a bit of baking lately and may soon be the next Betty Crocker. For the 4th of July, I made my very first (successful) 2-layer cake. Don't get me wrong, I have definitely tried before, but have always ended up with a crumbled mess. This time however, I must have done something right because this is how it turned out:

I'm definitely no Cake Boss, but I think it turned out pretty cute. Even better, it wasn't only edible, it was actually good! :)

My cake isn't only the only homemade goodness around here.
Jesse brewed his first batch of homemade beer since our move.
 He chose this summer ale:
I admit that it looks really gross while it's brewing
But the good news is that it's absolutely amazing once it's bottled.
Of course with good news, there usually comes bad news as well. In this case, the bad news is that it's already all gone! I guess that means it's time to brew another batch. :)

I hope everyone is having a great week!
With Love,
The Lynchs
