Let's celebrate this Fourth of July like we used to, homemade ice cream, sparklers,
maybe even a cap gun and oh anxiously anticipating the Fireworks in Town after the sun sets.
Lets have just one slice of strawberry cake before we venture out...
the kind just like Mom used to make.
Oh remember these cakes, the ones that tasted just as sweet as a sugar cookie and if you were lucky
you could eat the batter straight from the striped mixing bowl, as soon as the cake pans were filled.
And oh the fluffy, swirly frosting made with butter and powdered sugar and just maybe if we
were lucky we got to lick the spoon, or maybe stick a finger in the bowl when Mom wasn't looking.
One of the very best things about this recipe is the no nonsense list of ingredients, and just so
you will know-My oldest daughter told me "Mom, this tastes just like a cake Grandma would make."
Grab a patriotic candle or two just for good measure, and if the cake isn't picture perfect,
no worries, the flavor is.
I am chilling with a couple of the granddaughters a few days this week while their parents are
vacationing, I'll be stopping by to visit you all very, very soon!
