Of the many homemaking skills Amy is learning, baking is one of her very favorites!
Her Daddy is "willing" to taste her creations so its a win-win situation.
"Willing" as in ~~~ "Hey, Amy, we haven't had any treats lately, why don't you bake something!
They are both "givers" so this works out well.
Here is her latest creation.....
|the cake & icing recipes came from her new cookbook ~ we bought when Borders went out of business|
|Yummy Chocolate-y goodness in a cupcake wrapper|
|She made these for our friend Angel's birthday, for our dessert after dinner|
We've been looking for a "from scratch" chocolate cake recipe that was really good ~ don't have to look any longer! She had made the chocolate icing once before for a yellow cake, so we knew it was good. Now we just have to make sure our kitchen is always stocked with cocoa, plain flour, powdered sugar, etc. and the addition of sprinkles is always festive!
Some young man is going to be a "blessed" fellow one day, with Amy to take care of his stomach~ we need to start praying he's a choc-o-holic just like she is!
Yesterday I found this blog and this gal posted a Spice Cake recipe.
I've copied it and this will be on our "to try" list for the future!
I love these kinds of recipes because they are made from real ingredients, that most of us already have in our pantry, we can pronounce the ingredients, and know what they are. So much better and safer for us and our families than cake mixes. Now, I will be on the quest for a yummy, moist lemon cake recipe!
Happy Baking & Tasting!
