The last minute Birthday Hit!

Janet Iagulli


My good friend's mother had been in assisted living for several weeks and my friend's birthday came the day after Christmas. With her going there every day, all day, I didn't want her b'day to go unnoticed. I promised to be there with her on that day to bring the cookies I had made the day before for her mother to enjoy but just couldn't let this day go by without making her a birthday cake. I quickly checked my pantry for some simple ingredients to throw together and this is what I came up with which was a SMASHING HIT with EVERYONE!
