Tea and Cake

You know you are getting old when the candles cost more than the cake.     - Bob Hope


Most of the time I’m a scratch baker, but once in a while something quick and easy is called for.  This book, along the line of semi-homemade recipes, uses cake mixes to speed up the preparation of all kinds of cakes, cookies, bars and other treats.


This cake will make a nice change from my usual banana loaf.


Mandarin Orange Tea Cake sounds lovely to eat with a favorite cuppa.


This PB & J Sandwich Cake was my main reason for buying this bargain book ($3.99 at Ross).  My grandson really likes PB & J sandwiches and insists on taking them for his school lunch every day.  Of course, I make his sandwich with whole wheat bread, not white.  I’m looking forward to seeing if this will turn out as cute as it looks in the photo.

Isn’t it nice to find a fun and useful book for less than the price of a magazine?

This looks like a neat book and the price was certainly right! I'd love to try that Mandarin Orange Tea Cake. Yum!

Now that is a clever idea. Peanut butter and jelly cake, yummm! you will have to let us know how it turns out and if your grandson likes it.

Great price for such an interesting recipe book. ParTea Lady I came up with a trick to make my children eat more fruit, I placed the peanut butter in a food smasher and added apples, berries and other fruits and mashed them then it was spread on the bread. Any fruit combo makes it delicious. The fruit makes the peanuts taste sweet the peanuts enhance the fruits. A no lose solution.
