Gentle Readers and Dear Friends thanks for all your kind encouragement for Shores... I can defiantly feel that one wrapping up soon. I am in a quandary as to where to place some small initials and a date. When I finished up Village at HRH I was in the same place - where to put the initials. I know I can always throw them under the blocks but I wanted to incorporate them into the piece - so a little 1 over 1 action is needed. I think I know the spot I'll put them, but am open to suggestions.
Yesterday when we got home the daffodils we had picked up at Trader Joe's on Saturday had started to pop and really said "Spring" to me.... so I got a snap..
.... it's our little vignette to the season.
In the comments Jackie, from over at "Jackie's Stitches" (there is some lovely stitching going on over there, go check it out!!) made me laugh right out loud!!! I didn't mean to leave you with the impression I only liked 4 kinds of cake - in fact I personally think cake should be its own food group!!! I love me some cake - just about every kind - however I do have a top four preference list - that will always get me going!!! Topping off that list is German Chocolate Cake -
|from Shiny Cooking|
.....which has absolutely nothing to do with Germany or German baking - click HERE to read more about this delicious cake!!
Second on the list is Boston Cream Pie -
This "cake" has nothing to do with any kind of pie, but was invented in Boston!! You can read HERE about this deliciousness!!!
Third on my list of Top Four Cakes would have to be my Great Grandmother Walton's Pound Cake -
This is one I made in 2009 - as many of you know in my family at we have a Christmas tradition of serving a Birthday Cake for Baby Jesus. Since my Grandmother passed and my Mom no longer bakes I have been making the "cake" for the past few years.
Wrapping up the list is Rum Cake -
I have made this cake a few times over the past few years - and it looks like this and is the same recipe - quite delicious!!
There you go - my top 4 Cakes - gotta love 'em!!
That's about it for today sports fans.
Thanks again for you kind comments and for stopping by - do stop again!!
