Rainbow Citrus Cake
While I haven't actually made this cake...yet!!!! I can't wait for summer and our annual big shin-dig to make it. This will be perfect for it. The theme is always tropical as we live in Maine and the tropics are THE place everyone here wants to visit, just to get away form the cold and snow!!!!!! I'm sure it won't be a struggle to make it, the recipe is very similar to a cake I've made for years from a Betty Crocker cookbook my DH gave me for our 1st anniversary years ago. We were as poor as church mice, I gave him a coffee thermos!!!! To you cooks that complain about too much shortening in the recipe just think of it this way, there is only a 1/4 cup per layer of cake which isn't really very much!

Sugar Coated Pecans
These so good. You can vary the flavor by substituting cayenne, masala seasoning, pumpkin pie spice mix, or just about anything else you want. We're going to try mixing baking cocoa with the sugar, we'll update how it works.

Crescent Mummy Dogs
There is no way that one can of rolls will cover 10 dogs. I used 2 cans and couldn't do all 16 dogs that I need for tonight. I cut the dough into very thin strips, some less that 1/4 inch and they still didn't cover like the picture shows.
