The Verandah. Or, Is It A Porch?

carousel horse

This carousel horse is on an upstairs porch of one of the homes In St. Mary’s.  I can picture myself sitting up there, sipping on something nice and cold and dreaming the day away. 

Today I experimented with Boston Cream “Tiny” Pies (aka Boston Cream Pie). I made a sponge cake batter, but didn’t like the way it came it. So instead, I made a yellow cake batter for the cupcakes, using a #230 Bismarck tip, I filled them with pastry cream, and frosted them with chocolate glaze. Brian came home from school and ate three right off the bat. “Whoa, there”!  I am happy that he liked them, but eating all that sweetness made me cringe.

  2. Hi Liz: Love the carousel. Oh, those cupcakes look delicious. I got Chocolate Coconut cream and Lemon Meringue. They are soooooo good. Have a lovely day. Yes, there’s a shortage of
