White Christmas Eve

Today I've been enjoying Christmas Eve by making a Southern Living cake for our dessert tomorrow. I'm home alone today. Josh is spending Christmas Eve in Fordyce with his dad & brother. I didn't go with him this year because I've been missing spending Christmas morning at my mom's house. We'll be reunited tomorrow at lunchtime. For now I've been enjoying the solitude and the all-day cooking project. And the leftover shrimp.
Roscoe and the cardinal.


Our outside friend Ineko. AKA "Sneaky Ineaky."

I like to juice my lemons with this old-timey thing.

Love me some cake batter.

Lemon filling.

Fluffy white frosting.



And done.

Stay tuned for the garnish!
