Ice cream cake!

My friend asked me if I could make a cake for her. She sent me a pic.

I thought I could do it! Looked easy enough and it was. I really enjoyed making it!!! Here is my finished cake at the ice cream social...

The cake is so moist and fluffy. The most delicious white cake ever. Even if chocolate cake is your favorite, you have to give this a try!
Here are links to what I used to make it:
Frosting- (I did one and a half batch of the recipe)
Ganache- 12 oz chocolate chips and 12 oz heavy cream. Bring cream to a simmer. Pour on top of chocolate and stir. Add a little vanilla and a little butter. Stir until smooth. Let cool a little.
Cake instructions- (I just used this as a guide)

Yesterday was Christian's reading restaurant. He was my waiter and was dressed up like waldo, the book character. I got a menu with different choices to order and he read me the poems or stories.

Then he brought me lemonade and cookies. So sweet! He was awarded the life skill of CURIOSITY because he asks a lot of questions about everything and looks for more information in encyclopedias, books, and the Internet in class. Smarty pants!

Here is Christian with Mrs. Smith. She is amazing!

And I got this CUTE picture of Heidi and Christian after the awards.

Megan on pointe!

Megan started dance classes last fall and she fell in love. She really enjoys ballet and she was recently invited to begin ballet on pointe. She got her first shoes last Saturday. Here are some pics...
{Her invitation}

She tried on multiple shoes to find just the right pair!

Megan's friend Ruby. Thanks to her, Megan got her shoes!

Sewing the pointe shoes. A very important task!

All ready for class!
