One Cake, Two Stories

My Mother’s Day was very nice, this past May 13th.  At church, flowers were given to all the women in attendance, after the service (mine shown in this post.)  At home, I enjoyed a nice lunch, followed by a slice of homemade old-fashioned cake; I could not make up my mind between two flavours I wanted, so when my daughter was assembling the cake, she cut it in half vertically, and divided a large batch of buttercream icing, to create a “half-and-half” cake: 955 palabras más
