Coconut Cream Pie

What can I say? I don't get tired of baking. Cooking yes! Baking, no! I don't know what it is. I guess I love butter, cream and sugar way too much. That's not a bad thing for a baker.

My kids are not into sweets so I don't bake for my family as much as I used to unless I have company. My daughters only like pumpkin pie, while Rob will eat most any cake or pie set before him. But, what's the use in baking a whole cake or pie for two people?

I'm so glad my girls have friends who love cake and pie. When they come over it's my chance to bake again!

This was my first time making a coconut cream pie. I'm not a fan of coconut, but I wanted to give it a try. It was pretty good. I topped it with coconut flavored whipped cream. Yummy!

Steampunk Wedding Cake

I love this thing called Steampunk. I love the gadgets, the gears, pipes, etc. It reminds me of Sci-Fi which maybe it is? Reminds me of Dr. Who, The Wild West, the new Sherlock Holmes movie, etc.

I really loved the Steampunk side of this cake. Rob did a great job with the elements. I hope we get to make another one of these Steampunk cakes.
