Jack Daniels Bottle Cake


If I’ve never mentioned it before, Mike works for an adult beverage distribution company.  We end up with all kinds of fun shwag around the house.  Today was the best!  He brought me home a Jack Daniel’s bottle cake mold and label stencil.  How cool is that?!??

Choose poorly and you will suffer.  This principle starts at a very young age but it can also turn things around mid-stream if you’ve been using your fork in a harmful way.  Actually, I find that the less a person uses their fork, usually the
