I have also dusted with powdered sugar in place of glaze.

Drizzle over cake. Let set for 30 minutes.


The Shack by William P. Young

I learned about this book from the MQR forum.
The story wrestles with the timeless question,
“Where is God in a world so filled with unspeakable pain?”
Four years after his little girl was abducted,
Mac receives a note from God to meet him at the shack
where she was apparently murdered. The story unfolds at the shack.
It's one of those books that I will have to listen to several times.
Have you read it yet?

Our sweet baby boy is coming to visit.
He and his Dad are bachelors this weekend.
DDIL is out of town with girlfriends. Shopping, eating out and sleeping in.
Now, if they just took sewing machines I'd be temped!

Until next week..... Stay safe and have a great weekend.
