Every year I host a luncheon to welcome spring. I like to surprise my friends and leave them with a special memory. This delicious cake does the trick. Sometimes people are a little hesitant because they don't think you can really eat out of a clay flowerpot, but once I explain that the pot is new, clean and lined with foil, they like the idea and dig right in!—Mary Anne McWhirter, Pearland, Texas
Meet the Cook: Since we entertain my family - around 25 people - each December, and I do most of the cooking, I appreciate dishes like this I can prepare ahead of time.
I'm a home economics teacher...my husband is a teacher, too...and now our daughter, who's in her last year of college, is doing her student teaching!
