Heavenly!  This year’s Christmas decorations at The Cake Bake Shop in Indianapolis  feature pink roses and swans.  Gail and I shared a pot of Afghan Chai tea in real cups and saucers.  The owners are American entrepreneurs at their best…service, style and quality!  The press release is out announcing the opening their second shop in Carmel, IN.

This is my first time (this millennium) baking a cake from scratch.  With a Bake Sale on the calendar this month, I was eager and anxious to try a new recipe.  This is actually an old recipe which includes smashed bananas, pineapple, pecans and cream cheese.  It is the most downloaded recipe from the Southern Living website.  I made the Bundt pan version of the original layer cake.  “Try it, you’ll like it!”

Originally submitted by Mrs. L.H. Wiggins of Greensboro, North Carolina in our February 1978 issue, this Hummingbird Cake recipe is known to have won numerous blue ribbons at county fairs.

Well….cake may not be the best nourishment for the body, but it is essential for celebrations.  I also highly recommend the Cake Bake Shop in Indianapolis.
