Darlene is the hostess for the Dazzlers and I am the hostess for the Divas. I had the perfect stamp in mind that was gifted to me from our very own, Barb! It is Grill Sergeant from Whipper Snapper. He is a cute and rotund little guy! I colored him up with some Copic markers. The sentiment is from Kolette Hall...aka the dollar bin at Michael's!
The DP I chose to use is from We R Memory Keepers. The card stock base is takin' a stroll back in time to Sage Shadow from Stampin' UP! I also used a recycled netting from some organic shallots. Sssshhh don't tell!
We asked the DDD's to share a favorite recipe in their blog post that you would use for a picnic or barbecue. Now here I am asking for recipes as the hostess and I am having trouble coming up with one! I am not so much a recipe kinda girl. I just put in a little of this and that and don't keep track! For crying out loud! What was I thinking?! LOL We went to a barbecue recently and my friend made a really good lemon coconut cake, so you know who I called!!!!
Lemon Coconut Cake
1 small box lemon jello
1 box lemon cake mix
1 1/4C water
3/4 C vegetable oil
Beat above items for 2 minutes. Bake in greased 9 x 13 pan at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.
Five minutes prior to cake being fully baked mix the following items:
2 1/2 C powdered sugar
3 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice
When cake is baked and immediately out of the oven, poke the entire cake with a fork and let cool for 5 to 10 minutes. After cooling, drizzle powdered sugar mixture over entire cake. Sprinkle with sweetened coconut flake to taste and enjoy!
I do hope that you all have a few chances to gather with family and friends this summer to enjoy your time together. Please visit all of the DDD's. Their blog links are on the right side bar.
