Blueberry Upside Down Cake

Every time I visit my mom, she always loads me up with some kind of fruit.
This time, she gave me 2 pints of blueberries. What do I do with all those blueberries?
I found a recipe for blueberry upside down cake and baked for tea time with co-workers.
Turned out pretty yummy!
But I think next time, I would like to make the cake portion thicker.

Wedding Box for Helen

This is the photo Helen texted me last month:
"How do I paint it now... Tips pls," she said.
"OK. I'm coming over," I said.
Helen wanted to make a nice box to collect cards and gifts in for her upcoming wedding.

We bought some extra supplies.
Once I got back from London, I spent a night putting it together.

I lined the inside of the box with fancy glittery paper from The Paper Source.
It matched the color palette of Helen's wedding.
I get nervous at the thought of working with brides.
I understand planning a wedding is stressful.
So it was nice when Helen gave me her trust and let me simply work.
