At the end of the year we do a secret santa at work, the lovely "young" Kate gave me this beautiful "Vintage Cakes" cookbook so I thought I would try some.
It is written by a Canadian lady and I must say I have never cooked a cake with so much butter or eggs in the cake and in the icing.
They were delicious though. The ingredients were a little different than we are used to but it contained some good cooking tips.
A double layer banana and wallnut cake. Sorry- the lid of the cake dish squashed the top.
A Texas Sheet Cake - a very nice chocolate cake.Remember the little jeans for Evelyn....Soooo cute.
About Me- Bird on the Border
- I am so blessed to be a wife,mum and a grandma. Our wonderful son and his lovely wife have a beautiful little girl. My little family complete. My husband and I both work full time. We enjoy travelling, going in our caravan, dining out and spending time with friends and visiting our children whenever we can. I love anything country and Shabby Chic and I love patchwork and stitching and getting together with like minded ladies who love to do the same. Just wish I had time to do more. I love catching up with friends over a cup of coffee , and the smell of biscuits cooking in the oven on a rainy day. I enjoy keeping in touch with the many friends I have met through blogging and sharing our sewing and our lives on our blogs. I love going off on stitching retreats and quilting weekends with my quilting buddy and friends. And of course I love the birds in my garden. I also write the blog for our local quilt group Macintyre Quilters which you find on the side bar.
