Mom's "Wedding" Cake- A Cooking Truimph
About this Cook
My passion is art, and I also enjoy cooking. I mix my love of art and cooking by creating dishes that are unique, flavorful, visually appealing and healthy,
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking tasty meals that are very healthy. I am a vegetarian so vegetarian foods are my specialty although I occassionaly prepare meat dishes for the rest of my family. I also enjoy baking, especially breads and cakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Everytime we visit my parents, my mom makes biscuits for breakfast and vegetable soup for lunch. She taught all of my children the basics of cooking when they were very young. Every morning she let them mix the biscuits, cut the shapes, and bake the biscuits. Even though my children are older now, they wake up extra early when we visit to help mom make those same biscuits.
My cooking triumphs
My mom had her fiftieth wedding anniversary last October, so I made a three tier "wedding" cake (My parents got married in my grandfathers living room without a wedding dress, tux, cake or guests besides the immediate family, SO we wanted to give her the "wedding" she had always wanted but never had). It took two months to complete all of the roses. In the end the cake was beautiful, delicious, and mom loved it.
My cooking tragedies
There are too many tragedies to list.

Mom's Applesauce Pancakes
Good pancakes but very thick. Never quite got completely done in the center but burned on the outside.

Such good banana pudding! It is definately a family favorite! I also added a little cinnamon for a tasty twist on the old familiar version.
