one, two, three!

We asked M&M if she could hold up three fingers.. she smiled and looked at her fingers and looked at ours.. and couldn’t figure out how we got all three fingers to stand up? Then we showed her the way you show three in sign language.. no problem.. She’s now three and can show us! All day yesterday she would ask me, “am I three now?”

The Italian Wedding/Creme cake was such a hit last month for Cookie’s birthday, I made it again with a few alterations… ( I left out the coconut and nuts in the icing)… because when you are three… you want pink sprinkles!

Here is the recipe you asked for! It was handed down to me by John’s mother. It was her mother’s recipe!
Italian Wedding Cake
Melt together:
1/4 lb white chocolate
1/2 C boiling water
Cream together:
1 C butter
2 C Sugar
4 eggs

To the creamed butter and sugar, add one yolk at a time, then the melted chocolate and 1 tsp Vanilla

Next few ingredients you need:
2 1/2 C flour
1 tsp soda
1 C Buttermilk
1 C flaked coconut ( optional)
1 C pecans
( unless you are three, then add sprinkles :))
Sift the flour and soda into the wet ingredients alternating with the buttermilk.
Add the nuts and coconut
Beat the egg whites, then fold them in.

Spray and flour the pans, fill and bake for 35-45 minutes at 350 degrees.

1 Box powdered sugar
8 oz cream cheese
1 stick of butter
1 C pecans
2 tsp pecans

  1. I am with M&M , I like the sprinkles idea much better. Can a 49 year old have sprinkles instead of coconut? Much love to you all.

  2. Your daughter is one sweet three year old. At least four fingers is something a little easier to look forward to !

    Thanks for sharing the recipe. I plan on making it the next time I need a cake for an occasion.

  3. Two questions… how much is a box of powdered sugar, and do you refrigerate your cakes with cream cheese frosting? I may have to try this for Valentine’s day.
