4 days until Halloween,and it’s crunch time at our house. Today we made this cute Mummy juice boxes for the party.
I love this time of year, even though we live in Southern California and the seasons might not be so noticeable. October brings lots of pumpkins, apple cider, visits to the pumpkin patch, fall crafts, Halloween and a reminder that winter is around the corner.
I treasure all of Everly’s artwork. I try and save all of her artwork from pre-school all year long. At the end of the school year I go through her piles of artwork. It probably takes me about 3 days, between scanning, taking pictures and lot’s of procrastination, but the end result is priceless!
October might be one of my favorite months. We have the perfect excuse to wear silly costumes, eat sweets and make the house spooky. And when playdates required cupcakes, we know it’s usually a success. Happy Birthday Ethan!
I found this awesome recipe on Pinterest, not only is it easy to make but it sure taste just like the lemon pound cake at Starbucks.
1 box yellow cake mix
3.4 ounce instant lemon pudding mix
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
8 ounces sour cream
4 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3-4 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Spray your loaf pans with cooking spray or use butter ( I used the mini loaf pans 5 1/2″ x 3″ x 2 1/4) but you can use anything you have.
Mix all ingredients together in no particular order with an electric mixer for about 2 minutes, place batter equally in the loaf pans.
Bake approximately 40-45 minutes , all ovens are different so I usually stick a wooden stick in to make sure the cake is baked.
Icing: Sift powdered sugar into a bowl, add the fresh lemon juice and stir. Make sure the loafs are cool before drizzling the icing on top.
