|Cast iron pineapple upside down cake
I had 2 projects today... that I just finished. One - was to make a cast iron pineapple upside down cake (a favorite type of cake for DH (and one I almost never make as I'm not fond of pineapple) and two - I needed to create 2 more ceramic stamps for the studio.
I think I've mentioned before that I've been trying these Cast Iron Cooking Magazine recipes. So far I've tried several... including Chicken Pot pie, Bacon wrapped sausages, Chicken Spaghetti, and a giant Snickerdoodle cookie.
DH saw this Pineapple upside down cake in the magazine and has been waiting for me to give it a go. Today I did. It came out pretty good... if you like pineapple. But I can actually eat around the pineapple. The little pie bird in the center is just there to make it look cuter.... and I sprinkled a little powdered sugar on it for effect.
And as for the ceramic stamps... this was our first project this past Saturday. We were told to make at least 3 stamps in either different sizes or different styles to use as our signature stamp. I made 3 in class and came home and made 2 more this morning. One is a signature stamp... the other is a chicken head stamp (surprise, surprise!).

These are just recently carved out of a hunk of clay... still have to dry, be cleaned, and fired before use.
That's my Sunday so far... how's yours?

Oh, we got an Amaryllis bulb for Christmas and it's just starting to do it's thing! (Please excuse my dirty windows - it'll be spring before I get to them - pictures are not forgiving) I put it tentatively in the computer room window so it could get some sun - so far the cats haven't noticed it. Wish me luck with that.
Thanks for coming by. Wish I could serve you some coffee and pineapple upside down cake!
