Me and Martha
I made The COG a Hummingbird Cake for his birthday. I have been wanting to make it for a long time but I didn't want to have it in the house. The plan is this: we are going to the Cape to see Son of and ride our bikes and then go out for dinner. We will find time for a teeny piece of cake and, then, we'll leave it with Son of to take to work to share, or to eat himself or to feed to coyotes. Either way, we won't have to ignore it.
This is Martha Stewarts recipe - the flower things are sliced dried pineapple. I only did one pineapple worth of them, not the 4 she recommends. It turns out that it would have been better if I'd done at least 2 so the cake was covered with them. But still, I like the way it turned out.
Over 1 million calories per slice, btw.
