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:
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!!!
