My week of messy projects has begun. We attempted to start our paper mache astronaut helmet yesterday. It was a giant mess, but a fun mess or at least I thought so. That is of course, until we finished the first full layer on the balloon and it popped! So much work. So much slop. I felt defeated for a minute and then started up again. But this time the balloon popped in my hand, before we even started adding anything to it! Thankfully my original plan was to use a beach ball anyway, so we still had those lying around. So far so good! I’m kind of excited to keep working on it, but I’m also worried about removing the ball from the inside. Fingers crossed it all works out! Follow along on snapchat (bakedby.rachel) there will definitely be updates!

I think it’s safe to say that we’re all sometimes suckered into things. Simple changes to regular everyday products that make us somehow still want to buy them. Like the new Finding Dory Goldfish. They’ve only added some blue fish to the bag and changed the packaging, but I still want it. Because it’s cute. I mean, we’d eat them anyway, so why not a special bag… right? And then there are the patriotic Skittles. I don’t need them, but I want them. Probably because this is the first time I’ve ever seen special skittles and because I love patriotic stuff. See… I’m a sucker for it. Are there things you’re easily suckered into?

Because it’s officially angel food cake season. Yes, that’s totally a thing. It goes amazing with all things spring and summer, especially picnics and barbecues!

Angel food cake just screams summer to me, and Memorial Day is the unofficial start to summer, right? A match made in heaven. This should definitely be part of your holiday dessert plans!

I’ve yet to make an angel food cake in a traditional pan… instead I’ve made it in a bundt pan or in cupcake form and now in a loaf pan! It just shows that you don’t always need specialty pans. You can always make something work with what you have!
