Five-Flavor Friday

As normal, I lay in my bed last night going over everything in my head. Hmmm, what should I make the nurses?

I have only made one cake from my Viking cake class so I went through the list in my head. My favorite, the upside-down apple cake, may not be large enough for an entire crowd. And heck, I didn't feel like making the caramel sauce. Instead, I opted for the Five-Flavor Pound Cake.

I don't know why you would even have to cook it. The batter is just fine uncooked. Oh my.

But I thought the nurses may appreciate the cooked cake much better. Bundt pans drive me crazy. While I didn't have any major pieces missing, I still doused the top with some powdered sugar to try and hide the crust that came off in the unmolding process. It was still warm when I handed it over to the eagerly awaiting nurses. They're so cute.

And for you, the wonderful recipe.

Not anything to do with the cake, but I had to share these wild turkeys that decided to sit on a neighbor's porch. I think it was momma and two youngins. You can barely see the one next to momma sitting down. I forgot to tell the neighbor when I spoke with her today. Oh well.

The weekend is here! It's supposed to cool off. That, I can handle. Yaya!

Omigosh that cake looks delicious! I've saved the recipe and will give it a try soon. I know what you mean about removing a cake from a bundt pan...I've heard a few swear words escape from my mouth while doing so! lol

Hey, we get stray cats at our door, not stray wild turkeys! hehe xoxo

There's something about a cake with powdered sugar sprinkled on it that just makes me smile. They look so lovely, like the slightest dust of snow (which actually, I don't like when it's really dusting. Much better on a cake.) Bet they love anything you bring them!
