A Dessert and A Rooster For REDnesday!

Hello friends~ Today is Wednesday and that means it's another REDnesday with Sue over at It's A Very Cherry World!

A month or so ago, I participated in a Rooster Party and would you believe I am still coming across roosters in my home? I don't know how I ever overlooked this guy, but I did! He adorns the mega cup and saucer which holds this arrangement of flowers. He's kind of hard to see and that is why I forgot about him! The cup and saucer are both rimmed with our exciting colour- red. If you look closely, you will see some reds among the flowers too.

Also today, I would like to share a scrumptious dessert I made for Bible Study the other day; Chocolate Cake with Raspberry Sauce and whipped cream. I made the cake from scratch but you can always use a boxed mix. The red raspberry sauce is easy to make and if there is any left over, it is delicious on a homemade biscuit! My red paisley teapot and one of my red toile mugs made it into the picture too.
If you so desire, here's the recipe-


2 cups frozen raspberries
1/2 cup white sugar
1 TBSP. cornstarch
1/8 tsp. salt
1/4 cup sugar

Heat the raspberries in a saucepan.
Add the 1/2 cup of sugar.
Bring to a boil and then add dry ingredients.
Cook until thick and clear. Chill.
Serve over cake and add a dollop of whipped cream.
