This past week I had a catering order in Sayulita for a special birthday cake. The husband wanted a vanilla cake with a buttercream frosting and said that if I could make it for him, he would be a hero in his wife’s eyes, as it was her birthday. I had never made either a vanilla cake, nor buttercream frosting before, but decided to give it a go! After lots of research the result was a most delicious cake. I was very proud of how yummy and beautiful this cake turned out, and I knew that I just had to share it with you here today. A friendly warning: the French buttercream icing I made uses a lot of butter...after-all, the icing is called BUTTERcream for a reason. I realize that this recipe may be a bit complicated for many of you, but I can guarantee that if you do make it, you will thank me!

Have you ever tried baking when the humidity is very high? Many recipes come out just fine, but many other recipes just won’t work! Today I had one of those “just won’t work” attempts. I really wanted to make Cheese Gougeres (French cheese puffs), but the humidity of 95% got the best of me, or shall I say, got the worst of me! The cheese puffs simply would NOT puff up. Thus, I was scrolling through some of the recipes I had saved that I knew would work…humidity or not. Lime Mousse is such a wonderful and refreshingly light dessert, I knew I had to make it! I chose lime rather than lemon, because limes are a basic staple in every Sayulita tienda. The result was so yummy, I knew that I just had to share the recipe with you. I am hoping that you love it as much as I do; this could be the perfect treat to enjoy with your loved ones on this Valentine’s Day!

A HUGE thank you goes out to each and every one of you who helped to make the final steps of the Lifeguard Tower Project a success! This truly was a village project. Some of you maybe helped financially by donating to the cause, some of you did physical work on the towers themselves, and others were supporters on an emotional level (particularly for me)! This was a labor of love for our community and by our community, and now we can say that our Sayulita beaches are safer knowing that we have these structures in place.

Las Mujeres de Sayulita is a growing and powerful group of women in the Sayulita community working together to bring environmental awareness and action to our Pueblo Magico. Many stores in the community as well as our neighboring areas such as Punta de Mita are already implementing the “no more plastic bag” idea, but more work is needed in order to spread awareness, and help reduce plastic waste. The Mujeres’ first and recent project as a team was to reduce the use of plastic bags in our community, and it has proven to be a large success. Working in coordination with the 9th grade students at Colegio Costa Verde school, they have helped to reduce the amount of plastic bags used in Sayulita by providing a program for reusable canvas bags, and a plan for how the local stores and tiendas can use them.
