I don't claim to be any sort of craftista, but here you will find everything from recipes to jewelry, all do it yourself and always EASY!!! P.S if anyone has projects you'd like me to try please leave me a comment about it.

This is a recipe from my sister in law, that has quickly become a Kennedy Favorite. It is simple and easy and sure to ruin any diet. Enjoy!!!


1 box yellow cake mix
3 Tbs flour
1 Cup water
4 eggs
1/2 Cup oil
2 Tbs almond extract
1 Tbs poppy seeds
1 lrg package dry vanilla pudding

1 1/2 Cups powdered sugar
2 Tbs melted butter
2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp almond extract
1/2 cup orange juice concentrate

Mix all ingredients together; pour into greased Bundt cake pan and bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes. Cake should be golden on top, knife comes out clean. How easy was that.

Let cake cool 15 minutes then flip out onto plate. Beat all ingredients for glaze together, and pour over cake!!!
