Twin Day

About once a month Andy and Sam's school has a special dress up day. Yesterday was TWIN day.

Andy and his friend went for a red shirt with jeans. I think they ended up with a more "fraternal" look.

These two were a bit more identical. Funny enough, Sam's buddy in this picture has an identical twin brother in the same class, but they didn't want to be twins with each other. I guess they get enough of that the rest of the year.

The Grade 3 teachers did it right! Andy's teacher is on the right. Aren't they cute?

Many-Layered Pancake Cake

I made this creation a couple months ago for my friends at the mommy's group I attend on Wednesday mornings. It all started with this recipe for thin, Swedish-style pancakes. Which turns out are very crêpe-like, but without the pressure of making crêpes.

One of the comments on the blog post had the cake suggestion, and I thought it sounded pretty tasty. I think I ended up with about 24 layers of pancake.

I alternated whipped cream layers with wild-berry jam, then covered the whole thing with whipped cream. I think it would also be DE-licious with a lemon curd.

I made the pancakes the afternoon before, and refrigerated them overnight, then assembled everything that morning. It was fun; like a giant, edible art project. And it WAS very tasty. Give it a try!
