Happy Memorial Day Festivities
As we venture out or host family and friends this Holiday,
Please take a few moments to remember and honor those who have given their lives for this Free Country..
And maybe say a prayer for those who continue to serve and also for those who make the choice to serve in the future.
Here is a Chocolate Cake I made to take along to a Party/Picnic later today.
First, a Baby Shower for a very special young couple having their first Son:)
The Flowers were given to me yesterday from my BFF,
Beautiful Roses from her Rose Garden...
After shopping in the early afternoon yesterday I stopped by Kath's and left with these Sensational Roses!
The cake is so easy..!
*One Devil's Food Cake Mix or your own recipe
*1 Cup Cold Water
Mix well with mixer and bake at 350 for approximately 20 mins or top is springy to touch..
I use a Crisco Icing for this cake...
*2 Sticks of Soft Butter
*2/3 Cup of Milk (I used Heavy Cream)
*One Cup of Sugar
*1/2 Cup of Crisco Veg Lard
*3 Heaping Tbsp of Flour
Mix butter, sugar and crisco...add the milk and mix....mix more.....turn mixer up on high speed and mix more...then mix more. This Icing will be very light and fluffy...
I cut cake in half and icing middle then reapply top of cake and finish icing top. Place in refrigerator until ready to serve....My Mother would bake this cake for special gatherings and parties. It was a favorite and always a big hit with many requesting when they were invited to an event she was hosting..
Enjoy your time with family and friends...
