Hello everyone! I decided on this cake today, because its fun to make something that looks as if you are a professional, or maybe they will think you bought it at a bakery. Then you get to tell them you made it. I have already been looking for a recipe for tomorrow. I'm undecided still. I think it will be another dessert for the diabetics. After all it's there turn. I try to alternate with the recipes, I'm only human. Sometimes I forget. Any way, here you go.
