This smile says it all!
This is my niece "C", she was the happy recipient of the bundt cake that I cooked in "A's" pan that I blogged about here My Wish Came True!
We had made arrangements to join my sister and her family for dinner. I forgot to ask her if there was anything I could bring. I was going to ask if she'd like me to bring a dessert. Before I could call back, a text message came in from "C" asking for my orange cake!
She said "OMG, just give me a spoon!" LOL!!!
I never replied to her message! But I phoned my sister back and we surprised "C" - she said she didn't think I'd bring it, because I didn't have enough time to bake one!
"C" is in middle school and she was on vacation with her parents, her older sister was working and she was at the cottage "dorm" alone! The room had 6 single beds and she loved it, especially when she had some of her friends visit!
This particular day was rainy and my brother-in-law said he'd only seen "C" a few times - for bathroom breaks and food breaks! LOL
I've mentioned before that "C" has awful food allergies. She can't have dairy, nuts or shellfish. So when when we cook or bake for her we need special "butter" and "milk" so that she can eat it.
I'll post the family heirloom recipe later this week! It's a recipe that my nana used all the time. Every time I bake this recipe I feel like she's in the kitchen with me! I can still remember her handing me the beaters to lick!
I always thought the batter was frosting when I was little, and she explained the difference. All I knew is that it tasted good!
