The Cake Slice Bakers: July 2014 and Other News

I did better this month and I'm only a day late. Considering everything that has occurred in the last month that is saying something. Which one should we start with first? The cake or the news? I'll keep you in suspense a bit more and we'll start with the cake.....

This month I made the Glazed Almond Butter Cake, and while I was a bit nervous because I know my boys and husband I was very pleasantly surprised to find that everyone like it. It has a great crumb texture, was moist and the best part was the almonds on top. I cooked mine a little earlier than I should have and they started to set up but it all worked out and the cake turned out delicious. It would be a perfect cake for afternoon tea or a luncheon.

Yes I would make this again and yes I ate way to much of it :) I would be good with other nuts too if you are not partial of almonds hazelnuts would be awesome. 

Now on to the news.....

Kenzie had puppies on June 30th.

They are three days old here, and so adorable. We have 2 males and 3 females. Today they are 3 weeks old and all have homes that are eager to have them already. They are huge now compared to this photo, eyes and ears are open, they are walking and starting to play. They go home to their new families in three short weeks.

This is why I've been busy and I am sorry I didn't get around to my post yesterday. I'll just blame it on the puppy breath, it kills me every time. While they are A LOT of work I am going to miss them so much when they go home.
