A Wedding Cake, Corn Maze, and All The Things I’m Loving Lately

It feels good to have my second wedding cake done! Just like last time, the days leading up to the completion of the cake were intense and filled with focus. I’m used to baking bread almost daily, so it was a nice change to play with buttercream and fondant!

Corn maze and lactose-free recipe

Saturday evening was spent at a corn maze with my church. It was fun to roam through the corn, mostly lost. We found our way out eventually and got on a hay ride that brought us to a bonfire where we roasted hot dogs and marshmallows.

Time for a recipe! I love pie. Pie crust gives me a belly ache because it has dairy it in (I’m lactose-intolerant). Sad. So I searched out and tested some recipes for a dairy-free pie crust. Yippie!! The recipe is now added to my recipe tab/pages.

Dairy-free pie crust


-1 cup unbleached flour

-1/2 teaspoon salt

-1/4 cup vegetable oil

-2 tablespoons cold water


Mix flour and salt with a whisk. Stir in oil until mixed and don’t be afraid to use your hands! Add water until mixed completely. Place dough into middle of a 8 or 9-inch pie dish. Spread dough out with hands, covering the bottom of the dish, up the sides, and over the rim. Bake pie according to directions and enjoy. (Makes 1 o- or 9-inch pie crust)


I’m off to school. Today is my long day on campus.. fun fun! Have a good Monday šŸ™‚
