Better Than Flowers

I have a particular weakness for grocery store white cake. I pretty much love cake of any kind, but there is something about that quintessential fluffy white cake with sickly sweet icing from the grocery store bakery that just hits the spot.

So imagine my delight when my dear hubby snatched up not one, but TWO of these glorious little clouds of sugary goodness, leftover from an office birthday party, and surprised me with them when he came home from work... Oh, how well he knows me!


  1. I am with you....I love cake with old fashion sweet icing. I hate that whipped junk....I bet you enjoyed that beautiful thing!!!

  2. Good morning, Ellie! Just found you--so glad! I LOVE that white store cake sweet & yummy!

    Just took a stroll through some of your recent posts--love your beautiful photography! And honey--me, too! Love the way it looks dripping all golden and beautiful...aahhh!

    I'll be following along...hope your day is wonderful!


  3. Just found you too! I'm a yellow cake girl. LOVE to make the batter and just eat it with a spoon! Reeeally cute blog :)

  4. That's sweet! My hubby does the same thing with chocolate. I'm a chocoholic so if there's anything at work, etc, he always saves me a piece. It's better than getting a bouquet of flowers. Well, almost! Just found you via Brenda's blog. I'm your newest follower and would be delighted to have you follow me back.
    Have a great day!
