Now Playing: We're in the Jailhouse Now
Due to my planning a Twilight themed party coming in May, I have been battling with the decision to pay out the wazoo to have someone make a special cake or myself try to make something. Last night, I stayed up until 1:30am making a singler tier, 2 layer red velvet cake with checkerboard fondant as practice. I am amazed that I was actually able to pull it off. Now, it wasn't perfect. I need to learn more how to flavor and roll out the fondant. I also made the icing from a recipe my Aunt gave me, but I'm so used to having cream cheese with red velvet cake, that I think I'll do that instead. Anyway, I took my little creation to work today to test it out and see what others thought. They all liked it. I had hardly any left over to bring back home. (Which is good because my hubby can't eat sugar and I shouldn't either.) So, based on the feedback today, it gave me the nudge of confidence that I should go for it and just make the cake myself. It will make it extra special that I made something. It may not be as picture worthy, but it will still be better than a Wal-Mart plain white cake. I hope. So, here is a picture of it along with some Twilight props I've been collecting to gear up for the party. Enjoy!
Last week I went ahead and purchased my domain for rainbowkittys through Tripod. It was a little complicated at that GoDaddy site, so I stuck with Tripod. I just need to get them to list the domain officially. Otherwise, I'll have to resubmit to all the search engines myself. I know it's silly to have a domain for my little bit of use, but I've been thinking about it forever and just decided to do it. Supposedly you get more internet traffic if you have a direct domain and not just the free websites. So, I'm giving it a shot. I still have a long way to go to learn all this process, but at least it makes a few people smile. At least the flag counter on the bottom of the page looks like there are several people visiting. Anyway, check me out at http://www.rainbowkittys.com
I'm so thrilled with the new flag counter that I added to my sites. Now I can see all the various countries that are visiting my sites by way of a little country flag being listed in the counter. So far, my main site http://rainbowktys2tripod.com has received 8 flags and some from Italy and Germany are repeat visitors. Thanks to everyone who has been enjoying my web home. I like having a happy place to display things that make me smile.
