Our theme last night for Apples of Gold was Valentine's Day (our teaching was on hospitality). I found this cute craft in a magazine called Family Fun. I added a heart shaped cookie cutter since they were going to go to adults instead of children. I placed one at each lady's plate.

Valentine's Day is this week so I thought it would be fun to do something with hearts each day this week. Today I made play dough and Colette made a heart ... along with other shapes. I think she really had the most fun making birthday cakes for her doll. I have included our recipe for play dough.
1 Cup flour
1/2 Cup salt
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 Cup water
1 Tablespoon cooking oil
Mix flour, salt, cream of tartar in a pan. Slowly add the water, cooking oil and food coloring (or wait and add food coloring when you knead it). Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until dough forms a ball. Turn out onto wax paper, let cool for a few minutes, and knead until smooth. Divide into 2 balls. Store in plastic air tight container.

The first time I had this cake my sweet friend Marjo made it. I thought it was delicious. Thanks Marjo!! I like it for breakfast or dessert. Either way, you will find it easy and will get compliments from others.
2/3 cup chopped pecans (I omitted these but it was good with them)
1 cup sifted powdered sugar
