David is quite the baker/dessert maker. A couple of months ago he won 2nd and 3rd place in the hospital dessert contest.
So when our church had a men's cake contest he was up for the challenge.
He made a blueberry-almond upside down cake. This is the picture that was in Taste magazine.
The original recipe called for blackberries, but there were no fresh blackberries to be found so he substituted blueberries. This is what his cake looked like.
Isn't it pretty? (You may notice that it is on my Fire King Flora Gold platter.) And it tasted delicious. It was from scratch. And he won most creative. There were over 25 entries.
Then our daughter-in-law wanted a lemon pound cake. He made that too. From scratch. I didn't get a piece, but she said it was very good. I didn't get a picture, but it turned out pretty too.
Oh and this is a picture of the kitchen aftermath from the pound cake. He did clean it up though...
The only cake I ever made from scratch was a dud. It was a Coca Cola cake, with coke in the cake, and in the icing. It was an heirloom recipe given a whole page and a story in Southern Living magazine. It was nasty. It was terrible...anyway that's another story.
