Sweater Season/Flu/White Chocolate Houndstooth Wafers

Sweater season! I love the cold; sweaters, scarves, and fluffy socks wooo!



You know what else goes along with that?

Colds and flu's. I'm really glad I got my flu shot this year. I think I'd be in a much more severe condition right now if I hadn't. My lover boy and his whole family have some kind of severe cold; they passed the sore throat and head congestion on to me. Last year I had it bad. Counting my blessings! I found this really interesting image on Facebook yesterday. A friend had posted it. It's really interesting facts about common fears.

Do you see the fact that says 36,171 Americans die from the seasonal flu? How scary is that?


I think it's kind of funny they put the whole "Americans audited by the IRS" thing in there. Is that the average adult's nightmare?!

I never want to be in that dark place. No offense.

Now.. onward to food related things. This blog is called Big Awesome Cake after all! In the midst of my sickness last night I had an energetic rush that lasted all of ten minutes. I wanted to make Randy some awesome Alabama themed cupcakes. I was thinking some Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting with heart shape houndstooth wafers. I never made them. After that energetic rush, I ran out of breath (as raggedy and harsh as it was/is) and crashed on the couch to watch Waterboy.

"Man that's some high quality H2O!"



Onward to the white chocolate houndstooth wafers. I haven't made them yet, but in my head they look amazing. My plan is to pour out some tempered white chocolate and apply my houndstooth sugar sheet, then use my mini cookie cutters to cut cute little hearts or circles. 



I think it's going to look awesome. Thoughts?

Time for me to lay down and watch Being Human on Netflix!
