The Cake Lady

Our church is turning 10 in a week and a few weeks back the party was mentioned in the church bulletin. We have been a part of The River Church since the Grand Opening celebration and are pretty excited to be here to celebrate this moment in the life of the church. Anyway, the bulletin mentioned that there would be cake and ice cream... wait, did they say cake? I like cake... I love making cakes... I want to make the cake for the church!! I jumped at the chance. I would make all the cake they needed and donate it to the church as a love offering. This could be a way to thank God for the talent that he has given me and the church for their years of service and community.

So I started putting my plan into motion. How many servings? 300-350. No problem. What kind of cake? Well, in order to not totally break our budget I decided on a very yummy recipe that is based on a box mix that is doctored and comes out like a coffee cake. Yum! So off I went to Walmart to buy supplies.

Most of the time you can walk through Walmart and not be noticed by anyone unless you run into them or get in their way. Try walking through Walmart with your arms loaded with 15 boxes of cake mix! That definitely gets you noticed. People start to comment. Some even ask what you are doing and if they can have some. "Why I am making a cake for our churches 10 year anniversary/birthday, come join us and eat as much as you would like!" The checkers really got a kick out of this and mentioned that they might just join us.

Now try going back to Walmart a few more times, equally laden with cake mix boxes, pudding, powdered sugar, and marshmallows. Now, 39 boxes of cake mix, 39 boxes of pudding, 18 bags of powdered sugar, 6 bags of marshmallows, 2 gallons of oil, 13 dozen eggs, 3 bags of brown sugar and two XL containers of cinnamon later, when they see me coming, they greet me with "Hey, it's the Cake Lady!!"

**Unfortunately I did not think to take a photo of the lengthy list of supplies until after most of them had been made into cakes, but you get the idea.
