Mrs. Jones Pound Cake

10 Sep

When I went searching for a special recipe to share I came across this one, It came from a lovely woman that has now passed away.  When I started baking and decorating cakes I always said that I would not make it a habit of decorating other peoples baked cakes but when Mrs. Jones came to me with her request I couldn’t turn her down.  You see this was the only cake her elderly Mother would eat.  So each year on her Mother’s birthday she would bring me her baked cake to be decorated. Later on after her Mother had passed away and she herself was getting older and didn’t bake  anymore she shared her recipe with me. Now I can share it with you.
