Are You Tired of Cake??
Here is another cake for your viewing pleasure. No, I didn't make it. My nephew's wife did. Told you all she was talented at this. I think this snowman is so cute! I think she made this one in January.
It's amazing what they can do with cakes these days. There are so many tools, pans, and gadgets you can get. You can use fondant or make gumpaste flowers, and it just goes on and on as to how creative you want to be. Lots of work though. LOTS!
When I was a kid we never had fancy cakes like this. We had cake at times and it seemed my Mom could find something delicious to fix when there was nothing in the house to eat. She used to bake up soft cake-like cookies for us sometimes and they were so good. We didn't have treats all the time like we do now, so I guess that made them all the more special. Later on I remember this man came around and he had the back of his pickup truck loaded with cakes of all sorts. My Dad would buy a few off him and that was another treat. I have no idea where he got them. Maybe they were out of date or something, but if so, we couldn't tell the difference. He came around every now and then and my mouth started watering when I saw his truck turn up our lane. I was hoping that bed of his pickup would be full of cakes!
Today was so nice and warm....well warmer I should say. It was in the 50's and tomorrow will be in the 60's. It sure felt good after that cold weather we had over the weekend. It's feeling more like spring all the time. I hope it's warm in your neck of the woods too!
