Christmas Day: Dessert
by Sweets and Sweaters
Family Recipe, but may or may not really have come from Betty Crocker. And as far as I know she isn’t family….
As fantastic as the recipe is, whether it originated from a family member or not, it’s meant to look like this:
But I made a suggestion that brought this cake from good to magical and it’s just two words:
It’s a Winter Wonderland. Am I right or am I right?
Now we all know powdered sugar is delicious and it also makes this particular cake go from… “eh… I guess I’ll have a piece” to “I DON’T NEED A FORK, THAT’S WHAT MY FACE IS FOR,” kind of thing.
But it is also really fun and messy.
It all started with me recalling how I’ve always wanted to have a flour fight in the kitchen like Diane Keaton, Meg Ryan and Lisa Kudrow in Hanging Up, then realizing my hand was covered in powdered sugar and saying… “Mom… I just want to high five your shoulder.”
So I did.
Then that turned into this…….
After the mess was cleaned up, my family and I ate our cake while watching It’s a Wonderful Life. (I want to dress like Donna Reed. Call me old fashioned, but I want to wear heels in the kitchen. Can that look come back, yet or is the feminist movement still going too strong for that?)
My mom and I stayed up an extra twenty minutes until midnight to experience the day’s end. While doing so we watched the lights on the tree and listened to a beautiful woman with a beautiful voice see us through the end of this years’ Christmas.
Good-bye, Christmas. Thank you for your cheer. Until next year.
xo Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.
