We Had Our Cake!

Congratulations to all the wonderful ladies that participated in the cake decorating class last week.  We all had a great time and some beautifully decorated cupcakes were the result.  Some of you asked me for the frosting recipe that I used in the class.  I'm glad to share it with you.  This is a good recipe to crumb coat and frost your cake. Remember to always sift your powdered sugar at least once before you mix it with the other ingredients.

Karen's Cake Frosting

1/2 cup + 2 TB shortening (I use Crisco), 2TB butter, 1/3 cup milk (whole milk will make your frosting creamier), 4 cups powdered sugar. 1 tsp vanilla flavoring, 1/2 tsp almond flavoring, 1/4 tsp lemon flavoring. You can tweak the flavorings to get the flavor you like. I also use 1 TB meringue powder to give the frosting more crust.

Book Talk Bits

Hooray! What a summer we are planning for Adults. Those with I pad, Kindle, Nooks, or other e-reader device or I phone. We are calling on you to be in the spot light sharing your book with other readers in the book talk.  All you will need to do is tell a snippet about the book you have read on your device. Do not tell all just enough to get us interested in the book. Each person attending will share their own book. We will do this on the Second Monday in June, July, and August at 2:00 PM. Don’t be shy it’s all about sharing your love for books.  We will call ourselves “The Techie Book Invaders.” Interested persons contact Gwendolyn here at the Northwest Branch Library.

Dates: June 10, 2013, July 8, 2013, August 12, 2013 @2:00 PM

 

Happy Birthday Dr. King!

 Martin Luther King, Jr. was a very important figure in our American history. He was someone who stood up for what he believed in and never backed down. He made such a huge impact in history that we feel it's effect to this day. Some people saw him as a hero, others saw him as an inspiration. In memory of Dr. King's birthday, I have listed a few titles that recognize all our American hero's throughout our history. Be sure to check these out on your next visit to the library.
