Hot Polka Dot
7Feb/12

How To Tuesday: Break Out The Bunting.

This friday is a very special day. Can you guess what day it is? It's my twenty-sixth birthday and Hot Polka Dot's second birthday! I do so enjoy sharing my birthday with my blog. Makes the celebration that much more memorable. I can't believe it's been two years already. It's been so much fun!

So you might have guessed there's going to be cake. Of course there's going to be cake! You're not going to be able to guess what kind of cake though. I'm not telling! Rest assured it'll be sweet and pink and cute and the embodiment of everything Hot Polka Dot stands for. I will, however, give you a teensy little sneak peak.

All pretty cakes need pretty toppers and this one is no slouch. I've seen so many cakes out there with the most adorable bunting banners. Naturally I had to try one for myself and naturally I had to share it with you. I didn't want to you miss out on the easiest and cutest way to jazz up your cake.

Knit One. Purl One. Bake One. Eat One.

Oh hi. Hey you remember me. I'm that mildly funny blogger that bakes cookies and writes letters to both inanimate objects and weirdos.

No? I'm that perfectionist in the kitchen that obsesses over custard and cowers at the sight of yeast. Yeah I basically cry over spilled milk. Literally.

Nothing? I also have an unusually high attraction to all things with polka dots. I own not one, not two, but three polka dot aprons. With ruffles. And bows.

Oh yeah. You remember now.

I apologize for my absence. I have a good excuse though. I really do. Are you ready? Like really ready?

I've been busy knitting. No really. I knit. Now you know the awful truth. I am in fact a 50s housewife that vacuums in pearls, darns socks and spends the day in the kitchen with perfectly applied lipstick.

Ok maybe my pearls are fake and I can't stand lipstick, but I do spend blissfully happy days in the kitchen and I can knit up a storm. Well maybe just a scarf. And not those fancy cable knit scarves. Maybe next year.

To make up for my knitting induced neglect I made you some traditional Dutch Boterkoek. It's like shortbread only better. You just have to trust me on this one. It's dense, moist and chock full of almond goodness. You're going to love it.
