Life is Full of Sweet Surprises

Image

So, Mother’s Day is coming up, and I found a fun and unique gift that is great to give to all those moms out there! 🙂 Instead of just giving an ordinary box of chocolates, why not sweeten things up and surprise your mom by using a book to use as a hideout for the candies! (She’ll never see it coming haha) 😛 Just take any book of choice and cut out some pages in the book to put the candies in. I think this idea is the cutest thing ever, and it’s a great way to creatively recycle a book.

Pound Cake Perfection :)

Image

I don’t know about you guys, but I love pound cake! We would buy it from the store then stick it in the freezer. (I don’t know…I guess we just like to eat it that way.) 🙂 Usually, we’d just eat the pound cake by itself because it was already yummy originally. However, on some days (which is probably all the time haha), I crave for something sweeter so I’d try to find things to make the dessert even better. I would think of things that pair well with each other for a dessert, and the first thing that would pop into my head is strawberries, bananas, and chocolate. They’re one of my favorite things to pair together. ❤ Think of the pound cake layered with strawberries, bananas, and nutella. Ooooh and maybe some ice cream too! ~yuuuum~ Perfection right there guys. This is a great dessert if you just want something easy and simple to make. Whenever I just want to change up something simple, such as pound cake, I usually go for the fruit and chocolate combo. What about you guys? Do you have a dessert that you like to change up in some way to satisfy your sweet tooth?

“Don’t Judge a Book by Its Cover”

Image

Recently, in class, we’ve been reading The Count of Monte Cristo, and I think the story plot is pretty interesting. In the story, the main character has multiple personalities and disguises. The different disguises mask his true identity, and what he portrays on the outside is different from what he thinks on the inside. It’s like what they all say: Don’t judge a book by its cover.

These treats reminded me about the main character in The Count of Monte Cristo. They’re dessert in disguises. 🙂
