Recipe Spotlight

Coconut Fruitcake

We live in a little community of 27—if everyone's home! A neighbor game this recipe when we first moved here, saying it dated back to the 1800"s and everybody in the area made it. I soon discovered why when I took a taste...and I'm not a fruit cake fan! My husband, who's the inventor of a three-point bale mover, and I have a grown son. I'm a crafter and collector.

Baby Buggy Cake

Baby Buggy Cake

A little one is on the way...that message will be clear as can be when you roll out this carriage confection for a baby shower! To make the sweet treat, our cooks used ordinary round pans to bake two same-size cakes, then cut them into basic shapes to produce a buggy. Fancy cake decorating techniques provided all of the pretty finishing touches. Need a dessert that serves more than 12 guests? Prepare two buggies—making one baby blue and one pink.

Meet the Cook: For 50 years, I've turned to this beloved recipe to make candy to give away at Christmas. Of the many types I've tried, these pecan logs continue to be the most popular.
