Pineapple Cake


My daughter Talley and I had a bit of fun making this pineapple cake.  It was super easy, and fun to make.  We used a Wilton 2D tip to make the cake, and of course, just lopped off the top of a pineapple for the top.  We used buttercream frosting, and just made a cake mix, using six-inch pans.  One cake mix will be enough to make three, six-inch cakes.  Of course, you could have filled it with a pineapple filling; we did not.  We were more interested in just the concept.


My daughter spied a version of this cake on Stevie Henderson's Instagram page (she is a fashion designer).  She had made a cake like this with a face on it for a birthday cake.

Hope you are having a wonderful summer.

I have some ice cream recipes coming up.  Our newest obsession!

Easter Fresh


Dear Red Couch Readers, I have been missing in action for over three months.  We lost one of our sons in January, just 31, and it has been hard to come to terms with it.

I have thought of blogging again, but not until Easter have I done anything about it.  Easter for us is more than bunnies, eggs, and chicks.  Yes, we love those things, and it is always nice to have soothing "fresh" colors around after a hard winter.  Easter for me, means that because our Savior Jesus Christ died for us, and took upon our sins, that life is not over after we die.  We believe that we will see Chris again, and that he will be healed.  Because of Jesus Christ, we have hope.  I cannot imagine losing a son and not having this hope.  So just because I am featuring bunnies on this table; I want you to know how thankful and grateful I am for our Savior this Easter time, and I am so grateful that Heavenly Father loved us so much that he sent his son.  He truly is our source of life.

We bought these little egg cups years ago, and I just love their little legs and shoes.



I have a small collection of these "faux" chocolate bunnies.  Just don't take a bite of one.



The blue bunny glasses were acquired last year. 


The sterling was brought out for the occasion.  The bunnies like the good stuff!


The little vintage post card screen is so cute, and it provides a nice backdrop.  The little egg plates are new this year.


Here is a better shot of it.


I hope you have a wonderful Easter with you and yours.  I have missed blogging, and I have missed you and your kind visits and comments.

Have a wonderful Easter!

Gingerbread Creations at the Grand



Every year at Christmas Christ Kitchen holds a professional gingerbread contest.  Numbers were down this year, but I will share with you a few of the best.

The best, in my opinion was the Nativity Scene done by the Hall Family.  Every detail was amazing, and it is all edible!


A wiseman...


Another Wise Man


 I loved the camel.


 The details on the stable were amazing.  See the little bird.

 The Palm Trees

 I liked this little trove of water.


The lambs were so cute.



There was even a little dog!


My second favorite was done by a local cupcake shop, Sweet Frostings.  It was a depiction of  Family at Christmastime.  There were three scenes.  There was a Christmas Tree and Fireplace Scene, a bringing home the Christmas Tree Scene, and a Holiday Baking Scene.

The Christmas Tree and Fireplace Scene






The bringing home the Christmas Tree Scene, which I thought was charming.


These two just make me smile!



The third scene was a holiday kitchen.



I like the blue appliances.  The cabinets had dishes in them!




The little dog in front of the stove was so cute.


This is a fun event to go to every year.  I will close with a few pictures of the gorgeous Christmas trees in the Grand Hotel.



Thanks for dropping by; hoping you are having a wonderful holiday season with you and yours.
