Red Velvet Blondies with white chocolate chips and cream cheese icing.


I would say TGIF but on mat leave I have no concept of days of the week.  In fact I often think it is not the day of the week it is.   I am also not sure I can say TGIF as we are expecting quite the snow storm tomorrow.   Now again I don't really have any where to go since I ran my errands today so I may not even notice.  Unless I have to help the hubby shovel the driveway..ugh.   Parts of the next few days for me will involve making a Barbie cake for my niece who is turning 4 early next week.  Her party is this Sunday.   I love making these cakes they are so cute and I know she will love it.  I love how she knows the good cakes come from her aunt.

Thanks to all who commented to win the beater blades.  I dropped all the comments to in a random generator and the winners of the beater blades are
