Happy Birthday to the United States Marine Corps!!!

This past weekend was a very special time for our country! It was the birthday of our United States Marine Corps!

In Philadelphia, during the American Revolution, the idea of a marine force to protect and serve the United States by sea and by land was born. A resolution was drafted by a committee of the Continental Congress and presented. The resolution was passed November 10, 1775!

Every year, our serving marines, retired marines, family and friends gather to celebrate this memorable occasion and to remind us of the service our brave marines give so that we may have our freedom!

Ben Starr!!

Ben Starr and Ashlee Snider

It is National Dessert Month!!! This month has brought many gifts!!! The biggest gift was Ben Starr! Ben Starr (http://benstarr.com/) came to Abilene to speak at The Wylie Foundation Dinner. Starr is a graduate of Wylie High School and explained how his teachers helped mold the man he is today. Starr is well know for many of his appearances on a variety of TV shows, but his most recent TV spot was on FOX’s show by Gordon Ramsey, Master Chef. Starr was in the top 5!

One of his dishes he made on the show was a Pumpkin Carrot Cake, topped with cream cheese icing, and candied nuts. The Wylie Foundation called and asked for 400 cupcakes from this recipe. He generously shared his recipe with me and the cupcakes were a hit!

I had the opportunity to meet Ben Starr and he welcomed me with a big hug! He also gave full
permission to sell his cake and it is now a part of our menu! The picture above is my version of the cake! So, so, so good!
Keep an eye on this guy!! He has many great things in the works and we will see him again!

Wedding Cakes!

Interesting history about how wedding cakes came to be!

It was called stacked cake! When a couple invited their friends and relatives for their wedding, it was a custom to bring a layer of cake. Each layer is stacked with apple butter. The popularity of the couple is determined by the height of the cake!

What is your ideal wedding cake? Get a quote by going to the “Get a Quote” Tab tell us your vision and even upload a photo!
