Everything is better with sprinkles especially when it’s a Funfetti Pound Cake made from scratch!
School is starting back. I’ve got mixed emotions about it this year. I’m ready for the kids to get out of the house, to go and learn again. To be with their friends for 8 hours a day instead of complaining that they miss them.
I’m a little sad too. You see, this year, my son is a senior. In High School. My little sweet baby boy is almost all grown up. How did I let this happen?
I’m really proud of the man he’s becoming. Yes, he’s a teenager and gets a little moody every now and then. Yes, I still have to remind him to pick up his socks. But what I see now is a person, beyond my little boy.
Right now, he’s on the computer, playing an online game with his friends. They do that talking with each other stuff. (If you are a game player, you know what I’m talking about.)
What I hear on his side of the conversation-“dude, Dude…DUDE!” “What the…!” and there is no cursing at the end of this. I hear plotting, giving direction, accepting suggestions, Planning a strategy on how to kill the other team. He’s a leader. He’s not screaming and yelling at the other players (or at least not in an angry nature) When he gets killed, I hear him trying to help his teammates survive. He’s not just a leader, he’s a team player.
I know we’re just talking about a game but these skills will help him throughout the rest of his life.
So I know I can’t stop this growing up thing. But I can still draw out the little boy every now and then.
No kid can resist licking the beater or the bowl or the spatula, or all three if they can get away with it. And no one can resist sprinkles. All those pretty little colors everywhere. You just have to smile when you see them.
I don’t care what age you are, when sprinkles are involved…well, it feels like a party. Then you slice into the cake and find more sprinkles, creating a rainbow on the plate.
This is a dense cake, a true pound cake with a light vanilla flavor. And of course, lots of sprinkles!
