My little brother is getting married! Kirk and Janielle got engaged about two weeks ago and are gearing up for a beautiful, fun winter wedding! Janielle and her family are originally from western Massachusetts so her mom and sister came this weekend for wedding dress shopping. Because they were in town, my parents wanted to have them over for dinner and toast the future Mr. and Mrs. Monbleau. And of course I thought, what a great opportunity to make a cake! I have been seeing all sorts of owl cakes pop up on-line and I have been wanting to make one for a while. It was a lot of fun to make and I think it came out really cute.
I wrapped up the weekend with this week’s Sundays with Joy recipe from the Joy the Baker Cookbook. We had to make S’mores Brownies, which is right up my alley. Every time I hear the word s’mores or say it, I think of this. One of my favorites!
You can’t go wrong with chocolate melted with butter, graham crackers, and marshmallows. Part of the recipe requires the chopping of chocolate. Whenever I chop something, I find myself singing this song to myself.
These brownies are delicious! I really wanted vanilla ice cream to put on top but because we don’t have any, I made fresh whipped cream instead. Sooo good! Next week’s Sundays with Joy recipe is Zucchini Cream Cheese Pound Cake. I bet that is going to taste awesome.
Also, be sure to check out this post on Sundays with Joy from Bakeaholic Mama. She did a feature on the group and some of the recipes that have been made. My Dark Chocolate Raspberry Fudge Pops are featured!
I hope you enjoyed 🙂
