7UP® Bundt Cake Recipe

Back in the day, every brand had a recipe. The idea was to get you to purchase more of their products by providing tried-and-true, taste kitchen-tested recipes to the public. If you would like more recipes with 7UP® there website has them here. This 7UP® Bundt cake was one of those recipes.

Notes:

• While this is a 7UP® bundt cake recipe, the truth is any clear lemon-lime soda pop can be used.

• This is basically a pound cake, not a layer cake. It is denser than a traditional layer cake.

• If the amount of lemon extract is too much for you, you can cut the lemon extract down and substitute vanilla extra in its place. Do not go below ½ lemon extract ½ vanilla extract in proportions or your Bundt cake will not be very lemony.

• Many people use a light lemon-lime glaze on top (simply confectionary sugar + lemon-lime pop (or lemon juice) instead of water or milk, and a dash of lemon extract) instead of a dusting of powder sugar. It is simply a personal preference. You can also add some lemon and/or lime peel shavings on top for garnish.

• You could also add some lemon and/or lime peel shavings to the batter if you like (do this by hand).

• And speaking of by hand… many people swear by combining the flour but adding the 7UP® by hand and folding it in (instead of alternating as my directions below)

• Make sure you heavily grease (with Crisco) and flour your bundt pan or it will stick to the pan when you remove it.

Easy Unicorn Wreath DIY. This simple to make sparkly unicorn rag wreath is an adorable and whimsical take on a unicorn wreath. Follow the step-by-step instructions of this detailed tutorial to make this fun homemade wreath. From the multicolored mane, sparkly white coat, and fanciful ears and cone, this delightful unicorn wreath is a playful take on the great mythical creature.

Easy Unicorn Wreath DIY


The unicorn is an ancient creature that has been described since ancient times as a beast with a single large, pointed, spiraling horn projecting from its forehead. During the middle ages, the unicorn was a symbol of grace and beauty. The one-horned creature was frequently depicted as looking like a horse (most of us are familiar with this depiction) or a goat-like creature with a single horn in the middle of the forehead.

There are many mythical and magical stories surrounding a unicorn. The horn could cure sickness, render water clean and drinkable (a big deal before the age of sewer treatment plants) and neutralize poison.

Unicorns are as popular today as they have been for eons. People love to hold unicorn parties, make unicorn decor, and hang unicorn art on their walls.

This easy to make unicorn wreath is basically a rag wreath. The embellishments are small but powerful. You can make this wreath quickly, depending on how fast you can tie a knot. This is a great watching-TV craft project.

Notes:

• A standard white broadcloth was used for the white coat. One side had sparkles, the other side did not. When knotting, whatever side you want to show as needs to face one another. You can do a random pattern of sparkly and white, or count the knots and make sure XX amount are sparkly and XX amount are white.

• The horn is hot glued. You could staple it in place, or you could use goop too. The goop will take longer to dry.

• White and Pink felt were used to make the ears in this tutorial. Other color choices would be red, blue, green with the white.

• The mane tulle colors used were green, pink, purple, and blue.

• The horn color used was gold. Other choices would be silver or hologram.

• The body color used was white. Other color choices to explore would be light yellow or blue.

As you can see, you can make many variations to this wreath. The color choices to be used are completely your own.

Chemo Round 6 For Max

Chemo Round 6 For Max. Max's GME Update. This is an update of the chemotherapy protocol of our dog, Max who is battling Granulomatous meningoencephalomyelitis (GME). This is a canine disease where the white blood cells attack the central nervous system.


This is an update of the chemotherapy protocol of our dog, Max, who is battling Granulomatous meningoencephalomyelitis (GME). This is a canine disease where the white blood cells attack the central nervous system.

Chemo Round 6 For Max

To recap:

In July of 2014 Max, our (now) nine year old Coton de Tulear was diagnosed with GME. I’ve written about his progress extensively, here and here and here and here and here. This is the original post where I detailed the trail to diagnoses and remission.

In January I relayed the sad news that our pooch, Max, had relapsed on his GME. We went to Cornell for the first of four planned chemotherapy treatments to try and push his Granulomatous meningoencephalomyelitis back into remission. I did not do an update post on chemo round three (although I probably should have). He’s already had five chemo rounds and a sixth-round is planned for later this month (so much for 4 rounds!).

Above is a photo of Mr. Max sitting on Hubby in the Cornell waiting room. He was funny this time in that the second we let him down off the benches, he hid underneath them hoping the resident vet wouldn’t see him.

It didn’t work.

Chemo Round 6 For Max. Max's GME Update. This is an update of the chemotherapy protocol of our dog, Max who is battling Granulomatous meningoencephalomyelitis (GME). This is a canine disease where the white blood cells attack the central nervous system.


For the first time in a long time, we got some good news about Mr. Max!!

His liver numbers were “perfect” this round. I could not tell you the last time he had “perfect” liver numbers! And, his gallbladder was the size it was several months ago. We had hoped it would stop growing, instead, it got smaller! I would never have thought that possible.

This whole round was pretty smooth. We got there Monday afternoon, about half an hour early. They took him in, did his bloodwork, got the results before 5 (this rarely happens), and started him on chemo right after that. He finished was by the 8 am call (the resident call us with updates at 8 pm and 8 am daily), went in for an 11 am sonogram, and we were able to pick him up by 4 on Tuesday! 24 hours in and out with a chemo treatment!!

Summers at Cornell are vastly different than when school is in session.

We never even saw his neurologist this time. That is also a first. We couldn’t blame her though as Max was going home a full 22 hours early and she had surgery scheduled (no one expected him to be out early).

Reducing his Prednisone (to .3mL 2 weeks ago) seems to have been the biggest reason for the great liver numbers, and the reduced gallbladder size.

Everything is a balance. Max needs the Pred + CycloSPORINE + chemo to keep the GME in check. However, the Pred causes issues with his liver and gallbladder. It truly is a balancing act to keep one at bay while keeping the organs healthy.

All-in-all though, we were extremely happy with the news this time.

If Max makes it to the 4th of July, it will be 4 years he’s had noticeable GME symptoms. He was diagnosed with GME on July 10, 2014. I mention this because the prognosis is not-leaving-the-hospital to 3 years. Mr. Max is well past that mark now. His neurologist at Cornell told us months ago that Mr. Max is the longest living diagnosed GME patient they currently have. Every single day with him is a gift – even the days when he is being a PITA.
