Baby Shower Animal Theme

These cupcakes were so much fun to do but the animals were a little time  consuming.  My first time doing animals like these. Cupcake flavors , yellow butter & chocolate with vanilla buttercream frosting. The animals are fondant.

I must say I like the way this cake turned out, of course this time of year violets are a great flower to make and I love making buttercream ones. Not having any idea what the color scheme was to be for the party ( I just like these colors together) I was told “they were perfect” and just what the caterer was also using. Cake flavor: yellow butter with vanilla buttercream frosting. All flowers are buttercream.

Grated Sweet Potato Pudding

8 Feb

I have been negligent in posting recipes so I thought today was a good time to try again.

While going though some of my Mother’s old recipes I found this one for grated sweet potato pudding. I remember eating it many times, its delicious. Hope you will try it.

4 cups grated raw sweet potatoes

1 cup milk

3/4 cup light corn syrup

3/4 cup chopped dates

1/2 cup melted butter

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

1 teaspoon allspice

1 cup sugar

3 eggs, beaten

1/2 cup chopped pecans, (optional)

Blend all ingredients and mix well. Pour into well greased large iron skillet. Bake at 350 for 60 min. or until firm in center. Stir as needed to prevent sticking. Makes 8 servings.
