Cake Testing

It won't be long and we'll be planning our little private Valentines menus for our loved ones. . won't we? I tried this cake the other day. . and now I suspect it could be on the menu for Valentines Day. It is made in a 5 inch Springform Pan enough to serve 4 or .. .2 today and 2 tomorrow.

The beauty of homemade cake is not in the perfection of the cake itself as it is in the love that was poured into each mouthful.

I love looking through old recipe books and finding little gems that I've never tried. . .run on over to the Mennonite Girls Can Cook for the recipe.

All for now. . . with love,

  3. Did you really make a practise cake? That is a gorgeous cake and looks like just the thing to finish off a romantic Valentines dinner for two. I must go over to find out what's under the icing!

  8. That looks pretty "cookbook picture" perfect to me Lovella - great job! And I'm sure it tasted fabulous too.

    I always say a cake not only has to look good, but it has to taste good too. EVERY recipe on your blog looks fabulous and the ones I've tried have tasted fabulous too. Thanks for sharing your recipes and photos.

  10. what a beautifully simple cake stand. I have decided that I want to collect unique and interesting cake stands. I only have one right now but whenever I am at my parents (Revelstoke, BC) i go to the antique store and check around. Yours is really sweet! And the cake looks delicious too!

  18. I made this recipe cake yesterday evening with sweet rice flour for the gluten-free family member, the 8-inch layer version, with the custard frosting. It was okay yesterday, but today, after being in the refrigerator all night, mmmmmmm, wonderful! Thank you for the recipe. Debbie
