    It All Started When I Was 13

    We lived in an antebellum mansion in Macon, Georgia.  My mother always cooked dinners, sometimes held large parties for their friends, upwards of 50-75 people might come.  There were trays of hors d'oeuvres, finger sandwiches, and quiches, such were the rage back then...

    Jumble Cake

    This is a cake my grandmother made every week of her life (well as far as I remember) . It  was a Sunday ritual to have tea and cake at our her house - a few blocks away. I too now try to make one every week myself and never tire of eating it ...  ...

    All Kinds

    I have always loved to bake. Bread and cakes are my favorite things to make.  I particularly like making spice breads, red velvet cake, and pineapple upside down cake.

    Macaroon Syrup Cake

    Ok, so this is one of my all-time favourite cakes. I stumbled across it one day I was feeling particularly wild and looking for something a little different from my standard chocolate cake. Not only is it incredibly easy to make, it is extremely delicious...

    Why Does Southern Living Always Make Huge Cakes?

    I have made several different Southern Living pound cakes and they always over flow my pan. Annoys me to no end. I have made several variations of pound cakes from other recipe sources and they never over flow. I guess I just need to find a bigger pan. They are delicious cake...

    I think baking is fun.  I like baking cookies but I like better baking cakes.  When I was young, I loved watching my mom bake.  She constantly baked alot and I think this is where my passion came from.

    Cakes Are the Best

    There's just something immensely satisfying about baking. Seeing the finished product always gives me a sense of personal acheivement. Particularly if I manage not to burn it. Which I've stopped doing so frequently now, thankfully. Cakes are the best though, especially chocolate...
