Italian Lemon Cake

This Italian lemon pound cake is a recipe that I'd had my eye on for a long time. I finally made it back in April! I skipped adding frosting but if you visit the original recipe it'll tell you how to make it. The glaze needed a lot more lemon juice than the recipe called for. I used 5 tablespoons of lemon juice and it was still very thick. The cake itself isn’t very lemony so you really do need either the glaze or the frosting to bring the lemon flavour to this recipe. I'm not complaining though, it was still really delicious!

Heart Food (Bento Style)

Here are a few meals I put together for my girls. Benoto style but on these cute plates I found. I also picked up the bottom plate with 4 sections at Michael's. I got a tiny heart cutter (also at Michael's) in a fondant cutter set. Very cute!

Heart strawberries and kiwi.
Heart cucumbers and cheddar.
Heart carrots! And finally, a heart Nutella and PB sandwich.

Corn on the cob.
Heart shaped cantaloupe, blueberries and a cream filled strawberry.
Chicken tender pieces with heart peppers and tzatziki.
