Let them eat cake!

So these days, I've just been baking up a storm!  We're talking cakes, cupcakes, in all shapes, sizes and flavors -- I just love it!  Initially, Jake was my official tester, but yesterday, I ran out of bowls and plates, so I had to branch out and share the love (and cake) with others.   

 While I love the weather in Annapolis pretty much all year round; there's no better place to capture the feeling of fall than good 'ol upstate NY.  I am craving apple pie, apple cider,apple  doughnuts and then I remember our annual trips of my childhood to Focastle Farms.  For a while, I am homesick and nostalgic...  My most recent creation -- a cinnamon apple cake seemed to capture the essence of the new season that is upon us and my longing for NY, not to mention -- it is delicious.  It is so moist (I hate that word) it almost has the consistency of a bread pudding.  Unfortunately, I have no good photos to share, so you'll have to use your imagination for this one.

We still go to Focastle Farms at least once a month.  Looking forward to the Christmas season there because, while it's tremendous in the fall, Christmas is just that much better.Randi and Keith are longing for this part of the states lately too.  They miss this time of year.
