Lion Cake

I made a lion cake. I wanted it to be bright orange, but I ran out of red. I also wanted to use chocolate for the face, but I just used more frosting because that was the easier thing on hand.
It's a white cake with raspberry filling and butter cream frosting. It tasted fine, but I believe I over mixed the batter since it wasn't so fluffy. I will get better at cake making and cake decorating.

My Own Veggie Garden

I finally have my own raised vegetable garden. We are using the square foot gardening method as a guide. We went on a splurge and bought more than 60 different types of seeds including 7 tomato varieties and lots of Asian vegetables, some I never had before.
This is one of three beds. My beans are dying and the watermelons are dead too, but everything else looks pretty good. I have a couple of deer that live on the other side of the house behind heavy brush. I'm afraid they will eat my vegetables.
