Brooklyn Blackout Cake

My husband decided to go fishing yesterday after I came home from work. He took our 11 yr. old son with him, thank goodness! Lately my son seems to whine about everything, being the only boy, I think he feels defeated by his sisters.  After sitting in front of the computer for an hour I started to get a little bored, and decided to take the opportunity to catch up on my "Cake Slice" baking, I can't really relax when my son and my husband are home, too much traffic coming in and out of the kitchen. 
I started on my Blackout Cake first then realized I had everything for the Cinnamon Swirl pound cake, and the Meringue Cups! So off I went into deep concentration! Baking is definitely the therapy I need every so often!
Loved how this cake turned out, the pudding was delicious and really simple to make. The frosting was heaven, I think the next time around I might add cream cheese to the frosting just to cut back the sweetness a little, other wise perfect!

Individual Meringue Cups with Lime Cream and Fresh Berries

May's "Cake Slice Baker's" selection were these delightful cream filled meringue cups! Definately a light and refreshing dessert. I'm glad I decided to give these a shot!

Cinnamon Swirl Buttermilk Pound Cake

 I would like to apologize for being absent the last two months. I was busy with party planning  for my daughters "Quinceanera". April was definately a little crazy for me, enough that I needed to take May off from baking as well. Glad its over, and that it will be 9  years before I start planning for another one.

April's "Cake Slice Bakers" selection was this awesome pound cake! I'm not to crazy over pound cake, but this one is absolutely delish! The only ingredient I left out was the orange zest, I was a little worried about adding the cardamon, I'm glad I did! I was planning on having waffles for tomorrows Sunday breakfast, but changed my mind, this cake will go way better with my coffee.
