My Young Friends Going Away Cake

I work in a Physical Therapy Clinic and we have young school kids (I should say adults) work as Physical Therapy Aides. Ben goes to school in Ohio but works here during the summers. This is my first summer working with him since I just started my job in May and I thoroughly enjoyed working with him. He is a wonderful young man whom I shall miss very much. I asked him if I pouted or cried if he would stay but it didn't do any good. The picture is what was left after everyone enjoyed it. I had to bring home some for my daughter or ELSE!!

The recipe was one of Paula Deens but there are lots of versions of the Better Than Sex cake around on All Recipes and other sites. She also has a chocolate version in one of her cookbooks. I'm not a real Paula fan but some of her recipes are ok if you can get past all the butter!!!

Which tassel did you buy?

I bought the rooster.

That cake looks very yummy.
Have a piece for me please.

Melissa said...


I know that we both will love our tassels.

They are all so pretty. It was hard to make a choice, wasn't it?

I made the chocolate version for company dinner this summer. I have been wanting some sweet all I am really in trouble. :)

We would be great shopping partners.

At least, we have the Internet to go shopping together.

I did not see the tassel that I bought, when I went back to look at that webpage. I think I bought the last one. It was a red and yellow rooster.

She has so many pretty tassels. I also love the black and white rooster, and the pumpkin.

Have you checked out Art and Artifact? That is a gorgeous catalogue. They are on-line. I ordered some light switch plate covers from them, so now I get their catalogue.

Trust me, you will love them.

Dear Judy,
Thank you for the lovely comments in my blog. I am so happy you had such a nice friend to work with this summer. It is always fun to be surrounded by nice people...which I think happens to you a lot since you are so very kind. Much happiness to you and your family always.

I've been making that cake for years. Funny you should post about it. I just came across the recipe yesterday and was thinking of making it.

I don't add the sugar to the pineapple and I don't heat it up first. I also add a bit of coconut to it.
