Moving Day for The Geek Homestead

Today was our virtual moving day to our new host and boy, was it a nerve-wracking one! But we made it over here mostly in one piece. I’m pretty sure I also took the long way around a few times.

There are broken images here and there and probably a bunch of broken links since about half our posts aren’t visible right now.

You know how you sometimes have to leave things in storage back at the old place? That’s kind of what I had to do. Hopefully, I’ll be able to get to the other half of those posts within the next week.

So, here we are and now I feel like I can breathe! Thank you to all of you who put up with the broken site most of the day. Here’s to a new and better The Geek Homestead in 2020!

Gwen’s Sky Blue Rainbow Unicorn Cake

What do you do if your only daughter asks for a specific cake for her 6th birthday? You ask her to draw it for you with a description and then do your best to match it!

I will admit that this was difficult for me as I am not the best cake baker and really have no clue when it comes to decorating cakes. Someday, when I have time, I plan to remedy that by learning how, but right now, I just practice on my kids. They don’t seem to mind my attempts.

I don’t think I ever posted about Rhys’s birthday cake. His birthday was last month before Thanksgiving. He wanted a chocolate mint cake with chocolate frosting and chocolate shards. I wish now that I had written a post because it is a cake I’d make again and I don’t remember any of the recipes I used!

Gwen wrote this as part of a school assignment I gave her. She also watched me make and decorate the cake. I think she was making sure I was doing it correctly!

Merry Christmas from The Geek Homestead!

Merry Christmas to all of our readers and visitors! We hope that you enjoy your time with family and friends this Christmas season: the opening of gifts, the delicious food, the twinkling Christmas lights, and the chilly weather or maybe even some snow!

Let’s not forget though the reason for Christmas.

And she shall bring forth a Son, and thou shalt call His name Jesus, for He shall save His people from their sins.”

Matthew 1:21

From the King James Version

God bless all of you as we enter 2020 together!
