Yesterday marked the one year, one month anniversary of https://sweetkitchen.blog. The blog’s first post appeared on November 16, 2017! To help celebrate this milestone, a group of local blog followers joined me for a toast and some tea. I kept it simple and made a couple of bundt cakes and some holiday bars. It was the first time making each item – I thought it would be fun to test out the recipes together. Pictured you’ll see a NYT Cooking holiday bundt cake with icing, a bundt cake from a box (details coming!), and Magic Cookie Bars from the Best of Bridge ladies up north. The ladies who joined me yesterday appreciated each item so thought I’d share.
For today’s post, rather than a recipe, I wanted to share the menu for the holiday tea along with a discovery I’ve made with bundt cakes. Over the years, I’ve found success with Nordic Ware’s Bundt cake mix brand. It is now sold at Williams-Sonoma and can be found by clicking here – there are gluten free options too! Nordic Ware also sells some bundt cake pans that make for pretty bundt cakes and with the mix, they taste good too!
In the coming days, I’ll post the recipe for the NYT Cooking holiday bundt cake. It’s was a nice addition to our holiday tea and celebration!
