Wonders Never Cease

It's been a good day all around. If you've been following along for a while, you might remember I entered a couple recipes into a contest. Today, while I was looking through my blogroll, I came across the announcement of the winners for this contest.

My recipes took first and third. Yay! The jury's still out as to when I receive my prizes, but hey, at least I won something. Even if it's just bragging rights for now.

First place was Hot Milk Sponge Cake and third was PeanutButterCup Cake w/ Chocolate-PeanutButter Frosting. The first was a gimme, and an old staple in my family. The other was a recipe I created from almost-scratch (meaning I took other recipes and played with them until I had what I wanted). Needless to say, I'm more proud of the brain-child one than the family recipe, but either way, it's good.

Wow, congrats! Those both sound excellent. And you should be proud! I might have to try the peanut butter cup cake--my husband is a chocolate/peanut butter fanatic.

Woohoo! I totally voted for hot milk sponge cake--after I made it, of course. It was a real treat!

Congratulations! :D

Congrats on winning! I could live on chocolate/peanut butter...I'm going to write this one down for future birthday use!

Um...YUM! Congrats and feel free to come over and bring proof of how good these recipes are any time. ;o)

Kristin & Shannon - Careful. The PB cake is very rich. PB fans will be in heaven over it, though.

Thanks, Alex! Funny thing is I can't get the cake to work for me at higher altitudes. Flat every time. *sigh* You'll have to mail me some of yours.

Kristen - I'd email you some proof, but the cake keeps clogging up my modem. ;o) Besides, if I did that you'd kill your diet and then kill me.

Erica <-- who's been busy packing on the pounds and should walk away from the recipes, very far away...
