i baked a lovely cake last night for a friend's birthday. a vegan cake and surprisingly delicious. hazelnut cake covered in chocolaty coconut whipped frosting. nomnoms indeed!


yesterday was the first day of spring. last week's weather was beautiful, but this week it's been quite cold. despite the fact that it could possible snow today, i'm happy that spring is finally official. or maybe that should be depressing. eh, i'm hoping for the best. happy spring all!

recycling bottles

my husband and his brothers are big coke drinkers. and not just any coke, the cokes that come in the glass bottles because they have real sugar. since chirstmas i've been collecting all their glass coke bottles and more, hoping that i'd find a way to reuse them. three months later i finally found some use for them. check it...

 supplies: glass bottles, spray paint primer, spray paint (black gloss), gold leaf, and krylon crystal clear

i'm so excited to decorate my little apartment with these. i might hit up ace hardware for different color spray paint. mint, pink, or white? yea please!
