Caking with Mom: The Cake is Baked!

When making cakes, it is a good idea to make a few little extra cakes for later enjoyment.  This particular cake is amazing with fresh strawberries on top of it during the strawberry season.  So, Mom always makes a few little extra mini-cakes to put in the freezer until time for the sweet succulent goodness of farm-fresh strawberries!  Wow, my mouth is watering just thinking about the juice from a fresh strawberry dripping off of my lips!  *drool*

Along with the sheet cake, she made two 6” round cakes, and these pretty mini-cakes.

Next up….ICING!!!

It's a new day and a new food journey. I'll be using this blog as a motivational tool to keep my husband and I in check on eating "healthier for us" dishes. I hope you'll enjoy the ride with us! Also, don't judge us if we go off the rails once in a while, or if I just need to get some random non-food thoughts out there! Happy to have you here in my kitchen and our lives!


    1. Eva, I downloaded a trial version of Photoshop Elements and used it for these. I can’t afford to buy the full version yet, or another one that is recommended, but hopefully I will be up and watermarking again soon. :)


  1. Your blogs on caking reminded me of the Japanese comic called Yumeiro Patissierre, which is about a young girl who aspires to be a pastry chef. It’s so cute, and thanks to your blogs, I’ve returned to reading it!

    Baking takes a kind of talent that I unfortunately don’t have. Gigi and I both have bad genes for patience. Endurance is one thing; outright patience is another. Apparently, both you and your mom have an abundance of patience!!
