One of the best things you have ever put in your mouth....

No really, it is...

I have to make a cake for a gathering this afternoon and Saturday I decided to do a test run as it was a cake I had not made before.

Now, I am a pie girl. Cakes are good and all, but give me the creamy yumminess over the cake anyday. Until Saturday, when I met this cake. And all my years of pie loyalty began to crumble, just as the little pieces of cake did as I ate in joy. And I scooped those little pieces up and ate them too because of all the deliciousness.

Yep, a cake this good calls for some drama.

Trying to use up what is in my freezer I searched AllRecipes.com for blueberry cakes. I came upon this recipe, Berry Sour Cream Cake, and gave it a go. Here is the link to the original recipe and here is what I did. Cause I can't leave anything alone.

  • I did not add baking soda. Because I didn't' have any and my mother-in-law wasn't home to beg off of her.
  • I did not use raspberries as I only had blueberries.
  • I actually mixed in about 1/2 cup of blueberries into the batter and then put the rest down in a bundt pan before I poured in the batter.
  • The glaze is divine but it makes a lot. Next time I will half the glaze recipe to pour over the cake.

I dare you to try this cake and not love it. It got a thumbs up from every member of my family and Mark said it might be the best dessert I had ever made.

Oh, oh, oh, I started a craft project and finished it! I know, cooking and crafts and I'm not whining about something not going right. For years I have wanted to learn how to do embroidery. It has been at the low rung of my priority ladder, but I moved it up. And I became a little obsessed.

I made two pillowcase for Abbie's bed and even though they were very very very basic I think they are really pretty. Next I am going to look for some train or truck ones for James' bed. Who knows? I might pillowcase the whole family!


  1. That berry sour cream pie looks divine. Please share it by linking it up to Farmgirl Friday and The Country Homemaker Hops on my blog. I know everyone would love to try them.


  2. I meant to say cake, I got pie on the brain reading the post. Sorry.

  3. I am impressed!!! I've always wanted to do shadow embroidery for the girls dresses, but it's all I can do to get the smocking done.
    I will be trying the cake soon, I have blueberries in the freezer that need to be eaten.
