I laugh so hard at this. Every day is different, that's for sure! Today I busted out a lot of little things before the hoodlums got home. (In between laundry, dishes, budget planning, Etsy order filling, (thank YOU for the orders!) post office running, and floor sweeping/mopping.) I have been planning to create a darling centerpiece from the inspiration of this post, for the 20 people coming to my Passover Seder Dinner.
orange and white, so I'm going with that now. I found some orange orchid sprays at the craft store and I bought only one. That had more than enough for my twigs. (I found the twigs at my grocery store in the floral department.) I pulled them off, and hot glued them randomly onto my twigs. I burned myself about twenty times. So be careful if you're doing this at home. Be smart. Wear gloves or something. Protective eye gear. That sort of thing.
white containers and pitchers all down the length of our Passover table. (Which will be very long this year.) I was so giddy I texted my girl Alli, and sent her photos. She was excited too.
they can text back excitement. You know?
salted caramel frosting (recipe will be at the bottom of this post) on the face of the earth. I'd stake my life on it. I really would. Seriously go make this. Put it on cake, brownies, cookies, your fingers... whatever. You'll thank me.
pretty color. But what a fun first time experience with a new thing!
here, on Etsy (we love our Etsy around here!) and they are the perfect pop of cheery yellow for the table.
Then my children came home from school, and between homework, snacks, cuddles, haircuts, showers and talks, the rest of the day flew by. So I guess that's what I did all day. (giggle.)
What did you do all day?
Salted Caramel Frosting
First, make a double batch of this glaze and put it into the refrigerator to thicken. (Overnight is preferable.)
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup whipping cream
1/2 tsp sea salt
Beat 4 1/2 sticks room-temperature butter and 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar until pale and fluffy. Gradually add an additional 5 1/4 cups powdered sugar. Add 1 1/2 tbsp milk and 1 tsp vanilla extract. Beat until pale and fluffy.
Add about 2/3 of the thickened caramel glaze into the frosting and beat until combined. This makes a TON.
