I’ve dreamt of a simple iced cake with blueberry frosting and was so excited when my talented friends completed the vision with their flowers and paper goods. Miya from Layers of Loveliness handwrote the invitations using blueberry ink on blueberry paper we dyed! The result is a gorgeous suite with an artisan touch. Each one is individual with a hues of gray, steel, purple, and blue. Kelly with Fleur arranged Specked rare fritillary, garden roses, poppies, and peonies to complement the organic blue cake perfectly. We finished the setting with gray dyed linens with gold to add some elegance. I had an incredible time photographing all these details along with a dream cake.


Thank you Magnolia Rouge for the gorgeous feature!

Snow Day

January 12, 2016

And citrus frosted cinnamon rolls roasted over the fire.

Waking up to an orange sun and a blanket of snow is a welcome guest while we wait patiently for spring. The winters are long so we’ve made an art of staying in, building a morning fire, and finding fun ways to cook over an open flame. Our favorite is roasting cinnamon rolls which turn perfectly caramelized and gooey like the best part of the cinnamon roll, the middle. The secret is adding a little orange zest to the icing for dipping. Enjoy a morning at our farmhouse and the recipe below for fire roasted cinnamon rolls with citrus icing below.

Fire Roasted Citrus Cinnamon Rolls

1 package of cinnamon rolls

the zest of 2 oranges

skewers for roasting

small bowl to mix icing and zest

Open the cinnamon rolls (our favorite but any will do great) and place the icing in a small bowl. Mix the zest and icing until smooth. For your cinnamon rolls cut them into around 8 inch stripes for roasting. Small rolls may not need to be cut. Wrap the roll around skewer using the prongs and roast each side for 3 to 5 minutes. Let cool and cover with orange icing. This recipe is also amazing for camping or enjoying at a bonfire.

After zesting the oranges you can make citrus juice. We love mixing 5 or 6 squeezed oranges with a cup of pineapple juice for sweetness but any juice mix you love is perfect. It’s a nice break from hot chocolate and makes you excited for warmer days. But the best is using the rids to make the house smell amazing. Throw those in the fire to release all the oils. xx
