Wacky Cake- Lemony-Goodness

Image
If you have heard of a wacky cake, then you know that it is traditionally chocolate...
But one day not too long ago I had run out of cocoa abd still wanted to make the cake... So instead of the cocoa, I added lemon juice... And it was great...
So here is the traditional "Wacky Cake" recipe... the red is what I do instead...
WACKY CAKE

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa(1/4 cup lemon juice)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla & 1/4 tsp lemon extract & 1/4 tsp orange extract
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1/3 cup vegetable, peanut or light olive oil
1 cup cold water, milk or chocolate milk

Preheat oven to 350°F.

This cake is so easy and fun to make that you'll be tempted to save on dishes by preparing it in a disposable 8 or 9 inch square pan.

There are no mixing bowls to worry about, since the cake is mixed directly in the pan so that you can make it more often.

Grease the pan well with Crisco or vegetable shortening.

Measure the flou…

Hello, Halloween... {PH}

Image
ugh... yes I know it's been so long...
I've been away for a while, mostly because I've been working a lot, and secondly my camera was on life support... But luckily, I was blessed enough to have a little bit of extra funds in my check to buy a new one...
So yea, yesterday was Halloween...
I went as a Rockstar/Rihanna (if you ask my father...) but mostly just a rockstar...





Here are pics...
I used my Mehron Pastel Palette for the pink section of my face, covered that with Ben Nye's Azalea, outlined it with my Milani Blackened Teal Double Ended liner.
For the eyes I used Ben Nye's Ice (lid), Amethyst,(crease) Cosmic Blue (crease), Iced Gold (highlight) and Urban Decay's Perversion (cut crease).
Cheeks are BN Azalea (right), and BN Cosmic Blue & Amethyst (left)
My lips were outlined in black and then filled in with Maybelline's Wine and roses...  but then I ate... and the lips were gone... meh.. obligatory edited pic...
