Megan's Basic Buttercream :
1/2 c.melted real butter (margarine will make it look yellowed)
1/2 c. crisco
4 c. powdered sugar
splash of vanilla
splash of almond
1/4 water or milk
(any other clear flavorings can be added to taste,
such as lemon, orange, coconut,peppermint, etc.)
Cake Devo: "If you were a cake..."
1. If you were a cake, what flavor would you be?
2. Do you find yourself not appreciating the flavor that God made you and wishing you were red velvet even if God made you strawberry? Be grateful for the way God made you.
3. Find out what are good counterparts to your flavor; find friends who compliment your flavor and who you can compliment. Discover ways to compliment others (husband and children and friends) who might be opposite flavors than yourself.
4. If you were a cake, how are you layers?
5.If you are not allowing God to level you out and trim off the unuseable parts, it is evident in every part of our lives. Sometimes we can be a little over the top by ourselves, we need Christ to level us out and get us in line with him.
6. If you are not level, it doesn't matter how much "icing" or "decorations" we put on. Your physical and spiritual life will still seem out of balance and the whole thing may seem like it's going to tumble over. Just like a cake.
7.Do you have a hardened crust of bitterness, a lack of worship in your batter or an unbalanced schedule? Let God help you with your layers.
8. When we allow God to shape us and mold us and change our recipe, we will end up being a wonderfully flavored woman with even balanced layers that everyone can see was crafted with love, purpose and passion.

About Me

My photo
My husband, Gabe, and I grew up in the same hometown, however, it was not until later on in life that he "discovered" me. We got married in 2007 and had our first child, Madison Grace, in 2009. In 2010, we had our second child, Logan Carter. Life is pretty crazy with two toddlers only 18 months apart, but we wouldn't have it any other way. I guess... ;)
