Speaking volumes of risqué thoughts and borderline worships with an avant-garde, flamboyant collection of pinks, greens and purple shades thrown into the mix. Who would have thought that one day of playing could turn into a lifetime passion? From afar, or near, it’s not easy to see what prompted the glorious, devil may care conglomeration of flowers surrounded by the oddest looking wavy lines of wood. The hooker red and devil black colours of the short picket fence melded with the ambiance of the flora. A subtle shock factor as one board flanked the next in dramatic contrast.

Tradition versus tradition with a twist. Either way, family recipes get a taste test with every generation. The recipes that took forever to prepare and bake are considered to be the only recipe that should be made. Yet, in our family, tradition has been changed and our Carrot Cake has become a one bowl affair (other than the icing). We have shared this new twist on family tradition in our From Our Home To Yours: Cakes & Squares.
“It’s carrot cake.”
“No, it’s not.”
“Yes, it is. I can’t for the life of me see why you can’t accept that IT IS CARROT CAKE!”
“BECAUSE IT’S NOT! You don’t make it like my Gran did, so it can’t be carrot cake.”
“Just because I don’t spend hours grating carrots and I ice mine with cream cheese icing, doesn’t mean it’s not carrot cake.”
“Well, it’s not. She didn’t spend hours and hours making her cake.”
“Just taste mine. I think you’ll see what I mean.”
“I won’t like it.”
“Maybe it’s not bad, I guess.”
