Sorry I’ve been MIA for a while.. the 12 days of cookies really wore me out! I even took a mini break to Las Vegas to relax. I’m addicted to the “Deal or No Deal” slot machine. By addicted, I mean putting a dollar in and freaking out if I lose it or not. Don’t worry, I won it back on the “Goldfish” slot machine. Haha, I’m quite the high roller, don’t you know.
Here’s a quick little post on a cake that people loved. My DB and his sister in law even claimed it to be the best thing I’ve baked so far. That’s quite a statement! The cake is basically a lighter version of a cinnamon roll. Soft, just the right amount of sweetness, and not so messy to eat. I didn’t add in nuts, but I’m sure they’d make a great addition.
