We’ll start with Marilyn from Pink Martinis and Pearls, who has fond memories of watching her mother bake in the kitchen. Every birthday was celebrated with a homemade cake and one day, her mother made a chocolate cake that has since earned the title of “best ever in all the land”. This cake has even won 2 blue ribbons at county fairs! But before I steal Marilyn’s thunder, I’ll let her tell the story herself, as she does it so well.
Visit her blog post here and try her award-winning chocolate cake recipe to see if it truly is the best chocolate cake ever. It looks beyond amazing to me!
For over 100 years, mothers have had a special day that honors the care, love and guidance they provide to their children. They say it takes a village to raise a child, and many of us are blessed with more than one special woman in our life – aunts, sisters, grandmothers, friends, mentors. In celebration of Mother’s Day, we’d like to share a story each day from now until May 10 from our Wilton Test Kitchen as well as our Wilton Sweet Treat Team honoring the females who have inspired them most.
