Happy Feel Good Friday Y’all.
Did you know that today is National Pound Cake Day?
Who decides these things? I started the day off by giving the coop girls some cherry and apple pastry, I told them to pretend it was pound cake.
We woke to a dusting of snow today, the furthest feeling away from a spring in the garden kind of day. But if I was having a spring garden wedding, this cake on top of a bird bath would be lovely. But I have to admit I’m not this fancy pants so, it would have to be toned down a bit for me.
I think the cake in the rustic setting on the galvanized bucket rates up there and would be a bit more my style.
I’ve collected cake stands for over twenty years. My favorite, though, is a recent trash can rescue. It belonged to my mother, all though I don’t ever recall her using it. It is a square white milk glass stand from the 1960’s. Father Cottage found it last year while emptying out his attic. It was broken so he tossed it away. Yep, I snatched it out of the trash, brought it home, glued it back together and now it proudly sits on my counter.
I researched cake stands on Pinterest and found so many lovely styles. Apparently a recent trend is rustic stands made from old logs and wood.
Pound cake refers to a type of cake traditionally made with a pound of each of four ingredients: flour, butter, eggs, and sugar. However, any cake made with a 1:1:1:1 ratio, by weight, of flour, butter, eggs, and sugar may also be called a pound cake, as it yields the same results. Pound cakes are generally baked in either a loaf pan or a Bundt mold, and served either dusted with powdered sugar, lightly glazed, or sometimes with a coat of icing. *
Lemon is my favorite pound cake.
I haven’t tried this recipe but it looks so good.
Do you have a favorite pound cake or cake stand?
thank you for being here today.
