PPC-CC #12

I hope everyone had a great mother's day! We ended up having dinner at my brother's place with a bunch of family. I baked a tiramisu genoise layer cake and for some reason it was ridiculously dry. I have no idea happened. It's such a finicky cake that I really should just stop trying to bake it. I've baked it 3 times now and I think it only turned out once. And that "turned out" is more like a "turned out better". We'll see if there's another occasion for me to bake another cake because I still have another entire container of marscapone cream. Now onto this week's Picture Perfect Creations Crafty Challenge. We're already up to challenge 12!! Megan chose Bravo Burgundy which I can honestly say I have never used. I cracked open that ink pad and did some aqua painting after I realized that using the SU marker was going to be too dark. Head on over to the PPC-CC blog to play along with us this week and see what the other creators came up with!
