Three Tier Wedding Cake SVG

This is a simple wedding cake SVG file, but I used it to make an elegant wedding shower card.  You could also use beads or lace to decorate it for a beautiful card or scrapbook layout. For personal use only.  Please do not share the file.  You are welcome to share this page with your friends if they want the file.  Thank you for respecting my time as a blogger. Download the file here .   I have a different version of a wedding cake available here . 

Homemade Grape Jelly From Grape Juice Recipe

My kids are on a no high fructose corn syrup or food dye diet, so I have to make many of their favorite foods.  Homemade jelly sounds difficult, but it is very easy to make.  Promise.  I made two batches tonight in under an hour including clean up.  I make my grape jelly with grape juice, so it takes even less time than making other jellies or jams. If you buy a box of Sure Jell from the store, it really isn't cheaper to make your own , but the taste is worth it.  I am fortunate enough to live by Amish country, so I buy pectin in bulk.  A 1.75 ounce box of Sure Jell is $2.99 at the grocery store.  A 1.78 pound bag of bulk pectin is $5.14!  If you do buy bulk pectin, 1/3 of a cup equals one box of Sure Jell. I use the quick and easy freezer jelly recipe from Sure Jell.  I have done cooked jelly, but the quick version is just as tasty.  It doesn't set up quite as hard, but it definitely works for peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
