Kitchen pics and cannoli cake...yum!

When we first made over the kitchen I made some brown curtains. I should have known I wasn't going to keep them very long!! I am lace lady and the light colors make me happy!!
I put my lace back up and added new blinds, which I am not a fan of, but we need some privacy I guess!!
I think the brown counters add some contrast!
I love to bake and decorate! It's my favorite things to do being a stay at home mom.
I especially love when the family enjoys what I make and my rewards may not be bonuses pay raises, I get hugs and kisses!!!!

This is a cannoli cake I made. Pretty simple too. Just made 2 round cakes from cake mix and made a cannoli filling from this recipe here:
www.sargento.com/recipes/64/cannoli-cake
and made the frosting from
1 c cold milk
1/4 c powdered sugar
1 small box vanilla instant pudding. Beat on low for 1 minute and add 8 oz thawed cool whip.

It came out great and the frosting was nice and light!! Nothing too heavy and sugary, perfect with the cannoli cake!!!
Enjoy!!

That cannoli cake looks scrumptious, and your kitchen is so charming. I always stayed home with the kids and made them goodies too. I think it is so special that we both got hugs and kisses verses a pay check. Have a great week, sweetie.

Hi Jenn,
I am going to try your canoli cake recipe! My hubby will love it and he has a dessert tooth like you would not believe!
I love that you are a stay at home mom. I was too. It was hard sometimes as we were a blended family, but we did not want others raising ours.
Your kitchen is beautiful and I, too, like the light colors and lots of lace!!!
HPS!
