Hope everyone has a great weekend!  We have a busy one! Golf tournament, bridal shower, wedding, and a Sunday school party!


  1. for the strawberry cake: do you thaw any of the strawberries? esp. in the icing?

  2. I'm sure! Her recipe didn't even say! But I assume they would need to be thawed for both instances!
