Friday Q: What's Your Favorite Cake?
Even if just a bite.
Also, I'll never turn down a slice of coconut cake. I remember Papam (granddad), would go to the corner store and get little TASTYKAKE Coconut Cakes, with the layer of frosting on the top and middle, wrapped in that plastic wrap that no matter how careful my little fingers were, I'd always squish my cake.
Another great memory is Mamam's (grandma), Hungarian Chocolate Torte. I'd get to help whip the frosting by hand, even though the whisk was bigger than me. Then when my little arms (I'd use both), were too tired, Mamam and Papam would take over and I'd watch like it was a magic show.
Liquid into frosting. How'd they do it?
And now, a billion years later, I'm making new cake memories. Yesterday I made my first real cake. Though the frosting was much easier to make than memory served, I didn't make enough to cover the entire cake. That's why in yesterday's picture, you only saw a partial image. I only had enough to do half a cake.
Surely I would have gotten voted off The Great British Bake Off for that one, and as I sliced it down the middle (of the half-cake), I could hear Mary Berry's comments in my head. At least I can say, there were no soggy bottoms.
But now I'd love to hear from you.
What's your favorite cake or favorite cake memories? Is there one cake that you can't turn down?
