Oh, hey. I had a blog. Let’s get up to speed. About 2 weeks after that last post (you know, the one where I said I was going to have 4 boys?) I found out that I was pregnant. And, wouldn’t you know? That blanket was for her. (Pictured here on a different blanket, hexagon paper piecing tutorial coming soon!)

So, yeah. That happened.
BUT! Little Debbie! What’s with Little Debbie? Okay, well, Pinterest also happened this year, and not only has it changed my life in terms of the sheer number of sparklingly mudless mudrooms and t-shirt redesigns I’ve seen, it has also given me access to a compendium of cool-looking recipes that have mostly come out awesome.
My adored friend Cara from Why Can’t Wheat Be Friends linked them, intending to make a gluten free version, so of course, I had to repin the Homemade Zebra Cakes recipe from Confessions of a Cookbook Queen because Zebra Cakes are the yummiest little bits of dry cake and waxy coating ever invented. However, while the Cookbook Queen recreated them faithfully, I am nothing if not unfaithful, so I tweaked just a bit. I figured, if I ran Little Debbie, what would Zebra Cakes look like? Well, they’d be red velvet cake and much more fun looking. Seriously, standing there in front of the Wilton’s Candy Melts in eleventy colors, how on earth could I buy white and brown? Would you buy white and brown?
So, if I am ever asked to run Little Debbie, I will release an unlimited edition Zebra Cake and I will rename them Zebra Cakes of Fantastical Awesomeness and they would be approximately this:
Also, I will let any kitchen helpers lick the beaters.
Moral of the story: Don’t just pin it. Make it. And while you’re at it: Don’t just make it. Make it funner.
