Wacky Birthday Cake
If there is one cake I remember best as a kid, it was Wacky Cake. My neighbor made this cake, and soon it found its way into our holiday traditions. Made without eggs, the depression era cake uses vinegar as a secret ingredient! Buttercream frosting sealed the deal! Today is my birthday. And what a better way to share my birthday with you…here’s a piece of cake. Honestly, I have a fond memory of my mother making strawberry cake for my birthday, with strawberry frosting. She covered it with foil so it would survive our drive to the Adirondacks. The hot weather melted the frosting, and the cake was a disaster. But my mom made if for me…that I will cherish forever. Happy Birthday to me!
PS. I did make a wacky cake for this painting. I cut the piece out and wrapped it in plastic (not foil!) and will enjoy it later tonight!
