This is Cindy's daughter, Candise. I have forever said that I want to be JUST like my mom when I grow up and today I just might be one step closer.
I grew up with grandparents nearby and many Sunday evenings were spent visiting. I don't live in my hometown anymore and don't get to see my grandmas often enough. We have tried to 'adopt' some grandparents wherever we live. Our current town is no exception. Our local grandma had a birthday and requested a German Chocolate Cake. Last years request was the same, and was my first ever German Chocolate Layer cake. I think it was tasty - but not really photo worthy! I learned a few things and the cake turned out beautiful this year.
My mom would have been proud, it was on a beautiful cake pedestal (she taught me that presentation is everything), it was on time, and I even took a photo before we walked out the door.
