A great cake!
We have been planning Number Three's graduation lately... I have offered to make the cake!
My cooking is simple, ordinary, and I seldom follow recipes. But one recipe I have gone back to again and again is the Four-Egg Cake in A Continual Feastcookbook by Evelyn Birge Vitz. That is a wonderful sacrament cake--First Holy Communions, Confirmations, Baptisms, Weddings-- I have made it again and again, for over twelve years, and have had consistent, excellent results!
The recipe is a wonderful from-scratch experience, and the kids love to help as each step progresses towards a marvelous tasting result! Vitz' book is much more than a cookbook, it is a lesson in Catholic traditions in the kitchen.... I have recommended it for so many years!
I have decided even if it is not a sacrament, this will be the 2010 Graduation Cake!
This blog is dedicated to my Mother and Father, who taught me of God and of Art--and to Saint Teresa Benedicta de la Croce, our youngest child's patron saint, and about whom Husband and I learned together.
