Whew that's a long name for a cake huh? but it sure so yummy! My parent in-law's wedding anniversary was several days ago and i wanted to surprised them with a homemade delicious cake they could ever taste and that's my cake! Humble it is... LOL! Though i'm not lifting up my own chair here but it is true even myself can't believe that yes i can bake a cake and then make it so yummy! You can bake cakes using the ready mix packages but the one thing what make cakes so inviting and more savory is the icing and the flavors you put on it! I love playing on the food and make it so good!

The recipe is a piece of cake too bad i don't have a photo for a slice because before i knew it the cake was! Sorry guys am not ready to share yet the recipe of this because it's a secret family recipe. wink!

Guest post written by Lily Kindell I never really tried guacamole until I got to guacamole. It's not that I never had the chance to try it, it's just that sometime during college I decided to give it another try after snubbing it for years. Well, after that I would go out of my way to eat guacamole to the point that I got a little sick of it.

Well, I went out to eat a few weeks ago and decided to have some guacamole with my meal and it's like my love for it hit me all again like a ton of bricks. I've had it several times since then and I even decided that I should try to make some on my own. I'm a lot more domestic since my initial love affair with guacamole, so I went online to find a recipe to make. When I was online looking for that, I came across some clear tv bundle prices that sounded really great, so I decided to sign up for one of those bundles.

I did find this guacamole recipe that sounded simple enough for me to make. I just think that I need to avoid eating it too much though!
