It’s become a tradition for me to make my own cake for my birthday; I find a cake on pinterest that I want to try, and work my little cake magic.

The weather has been getting warmer (kind of) here, and the snow is slowly making it’s descent into the earth. That means that on the weekends, I have no motivation to do anything other than make a cup of tea and settle into my chair with a book. I’m currently reading through The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, and it’s this interestingly-mystical-magical book that takes me to another world. Continue reading “London Fog Shortbread Cookies”
