We were invited a couple of weeks ago to our Dear Friend's house for dinner and cards. They were teaching us to play "hand & foot". Hilarious time! Our wonderful Hostess served up a raw apple cake w/cream cheese frosting w/a twist, she used a combination of almond and vanilla extracts! A Home Run for sure!! The next week i made a carrot cake for a birthday @ my Husbands work and made my Friends cream cheese frosting...
