Champagne Food Friday

Sorry I have been away for a couple of days, have been doing some speed knitting to make a few Christmas gifts which have been taking up some time. On this Champagne Food Friday, I thought I would show off the horse cake I made for Bugaboo Girl's 2nd Birthday. It was a white cake from scratch, chocolate ganach frosting with butter cream decorating frosting. It was so good, and was topped with some vanilla ice cream. Needless to say it was all gone by the next day.

Kiva, a great gift!

I have posted about Kiva before and of course I have the button on my side bar. I am amazed at how my money I have donated is the hardest working money I have ever given. I get paid back and re loan it to someone else. Here is my newest donation, Rita in Peru.
Rita is a 28 year old single mother. She lives with her son and her mother who helps her and keeps her company. 10 years ago she worked selling clothes in Lima, but after having her son it was impossible to continue working, so she thought it best to return to her hometown. She worked on the farm to save up money, and has now opened a small clothing store. Selling these garments is more profitable than selling food and in addition, she has no competition. Rita is very happy with her business. This is her fourth loan from Kiva partner Microfinanzas Prisma. The money will be spent buying clothing for all ages, especially children.
