I CAN TELL THIS IS GOING TO BE A L-O-N-G POST
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ---- YESTERDAY ! ---- MARIAN !
This is the cake Sophia made . Grandma helped, a little....
This is Sophia posing with the cake fresh out of the oven .
This is how Marian felt about the cake Sophia made .
(This is not Marian . Marian is a human, this is Funion, a dog.
Trey's dog to be exact.) *picture by sophia
Why, you ask , would Marian feel so hang dog about a pound cake?
Sometimes the most mundain of events can turn into a BIG DEAL. But , not really in this case. It was a rather funny thing that happened to me on the way to the forum though. You see , my youngest daughter's birthday was yesterday. And, just by chance (?) I felt well enough to take Sophia with me to Anna's house so we could bake the cake I had promised to make and place on the beautiful serving/cake plate she had bought for me at the auction we went to a couple of weeks ago. Whew, didn't think I'd get that one out. Remember? I told you about it. ( See March 13 post ) Anyway, when I can I make each child their favorite pound cake on their birthday. and sometimes just for special, I do. As it turns out, Marian and her groom have moved to Chesapeake. Va. She is not close enough to share her birthday with us in person. When I spoke with her and she asked what I was doing I said I was baking her birthday cake for Anna ! Anna took a picture of the cake with a candle in it and sent it to her with a message about how good it was ! Poor Marian !
.....Don't feel too bad Marian, the cake was dry,,,,I should have pulled it from the oven a little sooner and I believe I overbeat it a tad too. And, to think, I went to Anna's to make the cake because Margaret's oven does not keep even heat and I've had several cakes fail. I believe I have lost my abilities as a cook . I can no longer blame the oven . I am sorry Anna . I will try to do better next time . Marian, some how, some way,
you'll get a Momma cake.
