ABC Wednesday is a word meme with participants from around the world. This fabulous meme was created and hosted by Mrs. Denise Nesbitt who hails from Great Britain. Over time, others have joined in to help host this wonderful and informative meme. We are now in our EIGHTH round! Some of the participants have been with this from the very first round; others have joined in along the way. Each week we are taken across the globe to see the varied and exciting contributions people have taken the time to discover and capture. We start with the letter, "A" and each week we post something in regards to the next letter of the alphabet. This week's letter is, "I".
Whether it is the figurative 'icing on the cake' or the literal 'icing on the cake', either way, it is GOOD. Unless, of course, you are one of amongst those (a minority I suspect) that does not care for sweets at all. But, if this image suddenly gave you an urge to make chocolate cake and frosting from scratch (and it is worth the effort), you can visit my food blog for the recipe and more images of cake and icing to torture yourself with (I rarely post there so don't think I have tons of free time on my hands!! LOL).

This woman wielded more power and influence than Martha Stewart (to try and offer some sort of modern day equivalency or perspective). A humanitarian and a visionary. Well, I hope you are intrigued and visit the link for Isabella to learn more about this incredible woman. I think she was a powerhouse and changed the course of history. She must have been a very intelligent woman too.
