I enjoy these dinners because I get see friends, be a part of a group of women who are making a difference, and eat cake. I love cake.
One of the women made this amazing Whipped Cream Pound cake. It was so good I found the recipe online that night on Anna's Cookie Madness blog and made it the next day. It is from Richard Sax's Classic Home Desserts and the recipe is on this page. Just scroll down to the January 16th post.
In other Have Fun Eat Yum news, I found an article via Cupcakes Take the Cake (a blog by and for three cupcake-loving women) about Alysia Angel and Krista Theiss' Cupcakes Against Domestic Violence fundraiser for an Olympia, WA nonprofit, SafePlace. The couple raised over $600.
I guess you can have your cake and eat it too.
