Side trip: Cake and Jewelry icon for iPhone

This is an easy addition for anyone using an iPhone or iPad that will create an app icon on your home screen that will take you directly to this blog.  (Family members, don't think I won't be checking your devices and making mental note of who is paying attention to me and who isn't.)  

Two important things to note if you want to do this:  You need to use Safari and navigate to the Cake and Jewelry blog.  Since the view defaults to the mobile version, scroll to the bottom of the page and select the "view web version" link.

From there it's simple; select the little icon at the bottom center of your screen to share the website to social media sites or add it to your home screen to keep a link to that webpage just like any of the apps you use regularly.  Select "add to home screen", adjust the text to display as desired, and that's it!

If you have a blog and want to create your own image to appear like this, I found the tutorial for it here.
