All Ears

Here's the last list of the year, which is why it goes to 11. I just finished that last one today! By my count (which may be off by one or two,) I listened to 42 never-read and never-heard audiobooks this year. I didn't have a goal set in mind, but I think that's a decent amount.

For 2016, I hope to listen to 52. One a week seems like a reasonable goal.

1: The Power of Habit
  Charles Duhigg

2: The Girl on the Train
  Paula Hawkins

3: Oliver Twist
  Charles Dickens

4:  The Sea of Monsters
  Rick Riordan

5: As You Wish

Minion Cake and Cupcakes

Red velvet cake and chocolate cupcakes decorated as Stuart the Minion. These were birthday desserts for a 7 year-old's party.

Inspiration taken from this one on the Betty Crocker website. The main change was baking a cupcake for the eye in a silver foil wrapper.

The cupcakes are decorated with frosting, with a necco wafer for an eye to make it a little more 3D.
