Cake you say???



Why yes thank-you!  I thought I should pop in since it is now May 1st.  Time is a monster. I have been busy, busy, busy with track meets, Spring cleaning, house projects, and my Papa's birthday this past weekend.  I made him a chocolate chip cake.  One of THE yummiest cakes ever...if you like chocolate that is.  We  most certainly do in this house.  I will be sharing the recipe down below for you.  It is very easy.  I first found the recipe over at Ms. Kims many moons ago.  She was sweet enough to share it along with her beautiful home.  I sorely  miss that cottage of hers.  Do any of you remember Sweet Daisy cottage?
                                         Anyways this cake never lasts long in our house..and if you make it you will see why.   My other little share is what I am calling a Mini curio plaque.  I adore it.  I used lots of little sweet tid bits.  I love anything that speaks of home.  I used little wooden houses, vintage buttons, antique  mother of pearl buttons, wood hearts found on etsy, antique laces, and of course some yummy seam bindings from RRR.   I just made this for fun ..made my heart smile today!  I hope it does yours too!  Here is the recipe.....just add your ingredients one by one and mix it all up.....I use a bunt pan and put her in the oven. OHHH it makes the house smell soo good! Next time I think I might try peanut butter chips for something different.   Hugs, cherry

I am like you. I like to put bits and pieces together when creating. Don't usually even know where I'm going with it when I start. Loved yours! I too would definitely try the cake. Can you tell me if you use instant or cooked version of pudding???? Thanks!

Hi Susan...I use instant just add the pudding mix in with everything..adds moisture.
