Join The Midwife Center for their ninth annual fundraiser party and cake contest, Let Them Eat Cake! The party will include refreshments, a silent auction, 1920s photo booth, live music from the Jazz Age, fun and of course – CAKE! The theme this year is Taking it to the Nines: A Roarin’ Good Time in celebration of the ninth year of the event and the bold attitude of the Roaring Twenties. Amateur and professional bakers will compete in two different categories – tasting cakes and decorated cakes, and you and a panel of judges will vote on cakes based on taste, decoration and use of the theme.
very morning it happens. Chef gets up, comes downstairs, and opens the door to my room. He asks if I want to go out in an annoying, overly-loud tone, “Wanna go outside?!” He repeats this phrase over and over. Of course I don’t, I’m still sleeping- HELLO! I’d prefer to rest a little while longer, but no such luck- he picks me up, and places me on the cold wet grass in the backyard.
I’ve loved to cook from a very young age- luckily I had parents that encouraged my desire to be in the kitchen. I started with the basics- eggs, pancakes, and grilled cheese sandwiches. Simple fried eggs were mastered first- my folks had an ingenious way of making sunny-side up eggs perfectly.
