C is for Cake

  • My mom made the best chocolate cake when I was growing up called Texas Sheet Cake. It was a cross between deep rich cake and a luscious brownie. Then she'd top it with fudge icing. I liked it best a little warm with a dollop of melting vanilla ice cream. Never have tasted a cake I like more.
  • My sister-in-law makes incredible detailed birthday cakes for all her kids' birthdays and for most all special occasions in our family. I tried to make a soccer ball cake for Luke's first birthday and it was a disaster.
  • Do you think you can have your cake and eat it too?

How funny....

I was just shopping for a bakery to have Jay's first birthday cake made...I want a special shape...

I was thinking of making it myself, but then thought...I've not made a cake since we moved to NC...I'm not sure I could get it right...
