Timber Frame Class Weekend

This weekend is my dad's annual timber frame class.  We have been cleaning and preparing and it's finally here.

I helped mom make Coke Cake~
She remembers having a piece of this cake at a neighbors house in Louisiana when she was 13 years old.
If you have plans to make this cake, the recipe says to bake it for 20-25 minutes.  It baked in our oven for 45-50 minutes!

 I would like to say that I got to lick the beaters but mom was really stingy with the sharing of these ingredients~
 I also helped her make cole slaw.    I am not finding my cabbage leaf hat one bit funny mom!
 Here is exactly what I think of you, stoopid cabbage leaft!   Nope, I didn't eat any - just shredded it. 
 The students at class will be thrilled to taste your cole slaw and Coke Cake, mom!
 Mitch has been sending our dad lots of pennies from Heaven♥
And mom got one too♥
Yesterday, we received this beautiful card from our dear friends, Madi and her mom.   Thank you so very much.  We love you♥
Mom and I are off to bake a lemon cake today for the timber frame students!

Love ya lots♥


  1. Miss Molly and Sue: We hope You are taking good care of one another, and not just baking because it helps you not think about our friend Mitch. He would not want you to worry and be sad. And he would be worried about you maybe burning your paws if you are not careful. As are we.

    Much love
    Gus and Teka

  2. Molly,OOOOh Coke cake my dad would love that for sure. Amazing how oven temp was off so much. Mom has several recipes that she has had to adjust too
    Once she had a chili recipe that called for 1/4 cup chili powder...4 alarm fire for sure. MOL Molly I think you are making a fashion statement with the cabbage hat.

    We are happy you received our card in memory of Angel Mitch....
    we love that he is dropping know the saying :see a penny pick it up, all the day you'll have good luck"
    Love and kitty kisses
    Mom and madi
