TWD: Cranberry Shortbread Cake
This past weekend, I went back up to South Bend, IN for a fantastic wedding. Of course, when in South Bend, one must stop by and visit the Notre Dame campus. Well, one must if one has spare time before one’s flight leaves, anyway.
The Basilica is, of course, gorgeous.
One of the most memorable parts of the day happened when I heard a screaming squirrel (a noise filled with such terror), turned, and saw this:
You have to look close, but if you do you will see a falcon hungrily eyeing a terrified baby squirrel (at the bottom of the tree). The poor thing was hopping all over the tree trying to avoid certain death. This story has a happy ending though–at least for the squirrel. Tom charged at the falcon, scared it away, and the squirrel ran to safety! It was a beautiful moment.
After a nice trip away, though, there is just something about coming home that is always fantastic. Coming home and being able to bake something as wonderful as this cranberry shortbread cake is even better. This one is really a winner, from BFMHTY, the cranberry shortbread cake is amazing! I recommend that you head over to Jessica’s blog straightaway for the recipe.
