Rainy Day

It seems it has been raining for days here in northern California. We've had quite a few gray dreary days and this weather is supposed to continue throughout the week. I really can't complain, though. We need the rain so badly. After a very dry winter, the rain is welcome. I decided to search Etsy for rain inspired items. I hope you like them.

Today I had an item listed on IndieSpotting. IndieSpotting is a gallery that showcases indie and handmade goods that are available online. It's an awesome site to wander around for some inspiration and to find irresistable items. You can also submit items to be included in the gallery. Go check it out!

Cool Birthday Cakes

My son is really into Star Wars right now and wanted a birthday cake that looked like a lightsaber. A friend had shared this site with me some time ago, so I checked it out. They had several examples of lightsaber cakes, so I picked one to try and this is how it turned out.

I made a chocolate marshmallow cake roll, which was pretty tasty. I rolled the sections in different thicknesses, so it looked like his retractable light saber toy. I was pretty happy with it. At least everyone could tell what it was, and my son really liked it, so that's really all that matters.

I've used this site before to find fun birthday cake ideas. There are tons of cakes and usually there are at least basic instructions to help you out. If you're looking for cake inspiration, I highly recommend it!
