National Cake Day is Coming


I just received the memo that November 26th is National Cake Day. Although this cake I made would look lovely on a Christmas table, I made it for my mom's birthday.  I am a lucky gal since my mom and two sisters all have birthdays in November. More cake for me!! I found the recipe for White Chocolate Pound Cake in the November-December 2012 "Tea Time" magazine. I brushed raspberries with egg white, then sprinkled with sugar and let them dry overnight. Mr. Mountain Breaths gave the raspberries 10 stars. The bits of green you see is sugared fresh thyme.


If you on a desktop computer and want to take a peek at the recipe, click on the photo below and the recipe will enlarge.


Thank you for stopping by! I am joining Rattlebridge Farm for Foodie Friday

  7. Debbie, this looks delicious as well as being an gorgeous presentation. I've long admired that form of bundt pan. The sugared berries and thyme are a nice touch. I know your mom was thrilled with this special cake.
    Love your new winter header. Chilly here today. We had our first freeze last night.
