Wacky Cake

Dear Friends:

During World War II many things were rationed such as butter and eggs. But people still had to eat and they still wanted cake. The Wacky Cake was invented, which has no butter and eggs and relies on baking soda, water and cider vinegar to make the ingredients into cake.

Fast forward seventy five years later and this cake has become popular again, because it is vegan friendly.

The cake looks like a cake and tastes like a cake. It is a bit more moist and a bit chewier, but it is a good cake. Tammy’s daughter gave it a ten out of ten.

The picture you see has a non-vegan friendly icing. But Tammy assures me you can make a good buttercream icing, by substituting butter with margarine and milk with nut milk.

Next I tried a recipe for a vegan brownie. Another easy recipe and as good as regular brownies.

The kid that works here is my main sampler, I don’t think he realizes he is going vegan!

See you at Scoop N’ Weigh, the Candy Store for Grownups!

P.S. In anticipation of the holiday season, I have just ordered more puzzles. So I would like to clear out what we have. Starting today, the 29 remaining puzzles will be on sale at buy one get one free. Please take note that there are only 29 puzzles, you snooze, you lose! I doubt if they will last to the weekend.

P.P.S. Speaking of Christmas, (sigh) we will be hiring two people for the holiday season to start around Oct 6: a young person (kid) for one or two weekend shifts per week and an adult for two to four shifts a week.

The jobs involve working on weekends and late shifts (to 7:00) and no guaranteed employment after Christmas. If you know someone who might be interested, please tell them to phone Tammy or me at 204-489-1031 and set up a time to see us.

Part of the job is also sampling the treats I bring in!

P.P.P.S. All you fuss budgets out there I need help. I don’t understand the difference in ( ) and [ ]? And what are these other things { }? When do I use them if I want to make (sarcastic) comments or is it [sarcastic] comments.

What I am really asking is, are there differences in usage: one used for additional information (clarification with a hint of sarcasm) and the other used for personal comments (you know sarcastic remarks [about men]).

P.P.P.P.S. This is your laugh!


This happens way too much for me and I end up munching on a bowl of raw nuts while craving cookies!
