300 Reasons to Celebrate!


Another Day With Julie just reached another milestone, 300 followers. That’s reason to celebrate if I do say so myself. And what’s a celebration without a cake.

With the kids off to college, we really did not need a regular size cake. No need to fear, the 6 inch cake pan was just what we needed. As a matter of fact, this would give us two nights of celebrating. I found a recipe for a Funfetti Cake (The name sounded perfect for a celebration!) at: https://www.dessertfortwo.com/mini-funfetti-cake/ . The Funfetti Cake was easy to put together and was indeed festive and delicious. I must confess that I used my own frosting recipe, but I can atest that the cake was worth making again.

Speaking of again….I asked my husband what the next milestone should be. He said, “301”. I guess he does not want to wait too long for the next cake.

Thanks again to all who have chosen to follow Another Day With Julie!

As always, Have a Great Day!

What is a celebration without cake? I decided to make a cake to mark the occassion. My husband, however, said that there was no need for me to make the cake. He still had coupons for desserts of his choice that our son had gifted him. He would cash one in for the occassion. Ok! I was on board with that. Last night was the night. I picked a recipe for Blueberry Lemon Layer Cake. ( https://theviewfromgreatisland.com/blueberry-lemon-layer-cake-recipe/ ) Yum! As my daughter is home from college for spring break, the kids rode their bikes to the store to pick up some blueberries. Later, after going over the ingredients, I discovered there was not enough powdered sugar on hand. Oops! While my husband and I went on a date night to see the musical Into the Woods (which was excellent by the way), the kids drove (this time) to the store to get the sugar and then proceeded to make the cake. We got home LATE and the kids were still at it…frosting the cake. I found out the next morning that they stopped at their grandparents’ house for a visit after the store, hence the late night baking. Never the less, the cake was made and it was delicious!

So now, a thank-you to not only my followers, but my husband and children as well. Also, a special shout out to theviewfromgreatisland.com for the wonderful recipe. I hope that my followers will continue to enjoy my posts. I know that I enjoy making them. Have a great day!
