My Kindred Spirit's Hummingbird Cake

My Kindred Spirit and otherwise Bestest Friend in the World, is an AWESOME Baker. I have featured several of her yummy recipes in my blog before. She TOTALLY needs her own blog, but until she starts sharing her AWESOMENESS with the world, I will just have to do it for her :).

I made 10 of her Hummingbird Cakes at Easter Time for my Baking Business. They were such a big hit that I was asked to make more for Father's Day. At Easter Time, you can decorate them with PEEPS Chicks, Whoppers Easter Eggs, and Toasted Coconut for the Birdy's Nest. Otherwise, I just top them with Toasted Coconut and Pecans. ENJOY!

Thanks, Charity, Love you Bushels and Pecks!
If memory serves me correctly, one of my BFF's Favorite Bible Verses is Jeremiah 29:11. Please remember, my dear friends, God's plans for you are ALWAYS good-in Him you have a Future and HOPE. You are prayed for and loved dearly!
"For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. 'They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope."
Jeremiah 29:11 NLT
