A Strange New year...What's Next?

It's been a very strange beginning to the new year, here in the U.S. Pacific Northwest, and for lots of our readers in other parts of the world. We had record snow falls in December followed by record floods in January.

Of course that's nothing compared to what some of our Australian readers are experiencing in the wake of the severe flooding in North Queensland and the devastating bush fires in Victoria. I may live in the U.S. now, but I am an Aussie girl born and raised. I have traveled to many of the affected areas in both states and my heart goes out to all of you.

Makes you wonder what's next really...

Well I can't speak for mother nature but I can tell you what's next for Easy Cake Ideas. We have some really exciting plans for this year. Read on to find out more...

Best regards,
