So you hear the news of someones passing...someone you didn't know personally, but felt like you did. Your first reaction is disbelief .."this can't be true". I just listened to him speak 2 days ago on my way to can't be true? Then you find out that it is true...and your heart is so sad. Sad at the loss of such a wonderful, giving person...sad for his daughter and family...sad for his co-workers, who were such a close group of friends/co-workers. Sad for anyone who listened to him daily...and sad for his wonderful charities that he so loved! Once the sadness sets in, you begin to think about how happy he made so many people, just by talking to you on your way to work...being an amazing awesome co-worker...and all of those special children who benefited from Kidds Kids! The legacy he leaves behind will shine, just as the life he lived. His last hours were spent doing what he loved to do and with people who meant so much to him.
Godspeed Kidd....the airwaves are all yours now!

On a much lighter new little logo business seems to be taking off!
I have so far created 3 new logos and have another in the works.
Please keep in mind that I can create a logo for any business venture you have...
not just baking. It just so happens that the ones I have created so 
far are for bakers...from a recommendation from my sister!
Thanks Roxane!!

Here are the latest....


So if you are in need of a logo creation, business card, etc...just send me an email at and I would be more than happy to create for you !

Here is an amazing little dessert for you to try..if you love bananas and pineapple, you will love this loaf cake!!


  • 1 pkg. yellow cake mix
  • 1 pkg. (3.4 oz.) Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 can (20 oz.) Crushed Pineapple, juice drained and 1 cup reserved
  • 2 medium,ripe bananas, well mashed
  • For the Icing
  • 2 oz. Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1 tablespoon of Milk
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  1. Heat oven to 350° Grease and flour 5 mini loaf pans.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine cake mix, pudding mix, cinnamon, reserved pineapple juice, eggs and oil and mix on medium for 2 minutes, or until well blended. Fold in crushed pineapple, bananas.
  3. Pour batter evenly into 5 loaf pans. Bake 40 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean. Cool completely.
  4. While loaves are baking, make icing. Use a small bowl and combine softened cream cheese with milk and sugar until smooth.
  5. Drizzle Cream Cheese Icing over cooled loaves.
recipe from Dole. This recipe is for mini loaves, if you would like to make it in a 8" or 9" loaf pan, I have not done this, but I would think you would be able to get 2 loafs, and I would check for doneness around 60 minutes.

I am super excited...want to know why? Well I will tell you why! For several years I have "piddled" around with computer graphics. I love doing it and it lead me to creating a weekly newsletter. I make all of my own graphics for my header and signature on my newsletter and also for this blog. I have been asked to create graphics for family members ....logos, labels, business cards and flyers. My sister, who is the proud owner of her very own baking/fondant business, Fancy Cakes, LLC, sent me a couple of her baker friends who wanted logos designed. SO I decided if I am going to do this, why not get a little compensation for it? So I am starting out small, and seeing where this goes. Here are a few of the things I have designed.


This is a business card I made for my sister who does amazing memorial blankets

This is a logo I created for my brother who makes the best BBQ/Dipping sauce around...not sure which one he decided to use.

The latest logo I made for my sister's cake/fondant business...she does AMAZING fondant work...check out her FB page'll agree!

And this is a flyer I made for my sister for her 35th class reunion. Sorry but I blocked out her personal info

These are also a couple of things I created for a co-worker and my sister-in-law as wedding gifts.

Something simple I created for my grandson....I also have one made for all my great nieces and nephews ( will get them to ya'll soon)

SO..this is my newest adventure. If you or anyone you know is looking for a LOGO...send them my way. OH the name of my "company" is
