Sorry for the delay with our posts, but don’t worry, we’ve been getting stuff done(ish).
Anyway, hello everyone. On Thursday, the freaking first day of August, we made a rainbow cake, fruit roll up fortune cookies, did the baby food challenge, we made ice cream, kept three balloons in the air for a minute, bobbed for apples, and we did the saltine cracker challenge. It was a day of delicious food and challenges, I guess.
The most surprising thing we’ve gotten done is the rainbow cake. I was really impressed because we honestly thought it was going to be a Pinterest fail–like all the other projects from Pinterest we’ve done. Though, it wasn’t. The cake was delicious (because how hard is it to screw up a cake from a box) and they looked like a rainbow.
We did an actual rainbow cake where the colors are all together in the cake pan and then we did a layered cake using a scone pan. We ended up just making a mess with the layered cake.

I believe while our cakes were cooking away, or at some point during the day, we made fruit roll up fortune cookies. They aren’t hard to make, but just really sticky. You need:
Fruit roll up
A cup or a cookie cutter (something in the shape of a circle)
Paper for the fortunes
A plate or something for you to put underneath the sticky fruit roll up so it won’t stick to your kitchen table.
Your first step is to take the cup or the cookie cutter to make a circle out of the fruit roll up. Make sure the fruit roll up is on a plate or something so it doesn’t stick.
Once you have the circle, you place a fortune in the inside. I took a lined post-it note and cut on the lined part to make strips.
Fold the cookie either in half if you are lazy like me or like a real fortune cookie (your choice).
So, I know for sure, after we made the cakes (sorry, going out of order), we made ice cream. Last year we made ice cream and that was the last time I made ice cream so we decided to make it again.
An ice cream maker of sorts
Heavy whipping cream
Another type of milk. Skim milk doesn’t work well but we used vanilla almond milk and it was so yummy.
Mix your ice cream base together and then pour into your ice cream maker.
Let churn for as long as your ice cream maker says.
Well, look forward to an updated array of post that are in the works.
Much love and summer fun!
