Ice Cream Jubilee Cake

Here’s a cake that will simply make you smile. I know it makes me think of all the wonderful trips to the old fashioned ice cream parlor in Ocean City, NJ after a long night at the boardwalk. I would go there with my cousins and we would all order our favorite ice cream treats. Too be young again when the only worry in the world was if you should order your vanilla cone with chocolate or rainbow sprinkles!


Star Wars Cake

As you may have already concluded, Sadie has taken over my weekend blog spot for the summer.  I am bogged down at the bakery and don’t have much time for my own adventures.  Most of my blogging will be based around the bakery since it is my entire life during July and August.  Here is a cake I made last week and I thought it turned out pretty well.  Star Wars is not my thing but I think I convinced the customer that it was!

Apple Pie Cake

Think you’ve had the best cake in your life…wait until you try this recipe. Eat a slice at 8am and call it breakfast; eat it at 1pm and call it a midday snack; eat it after dinner with some ice cream and call it dessert.  Whatever you call it, you can always count on it to be deliciously satisfying.  This recipe was featured in a church booklet of apple recipes.  It came from my best friend’s late grandmother, Janet Whiteside.  She was one of the sweetest older women I have ever met.  I can always remember going to her house and playing with my friend and her brother and cousins.  It was usually in the summer after a long day at the beach.  Every time I eat a slice of this cake, it brings back wonderful memories.  Hopefully, you will be able to make your own memories too.
