Foodie Friday!

I am still somewhat on auto pilot.
I hope to spend some time over the next week reading blogs and catching up!
It is the Prince's third birthday this weekend so, you can imagine the chaos added there!
So here is a quick Foodie Friday!

This is a cake I baked for my Mother and her sweet friends.
They had a girl's weekend at the beach!

I used organic sugar around it as sand

It is kind of like a poundcake but not as dense.
GREAT glaze

Here is the pan

It is Nordicware and although I got this one at William Sonoma
 (almost 4 years ago)
You can purchase at Amazon

The recipe is included and is specifically for this pan.
Hope you enjoy!

Be sure to stop by and see Gollum for more Foodie Fridays!
