Just Desserts BOM: Block 8
I am a child of the 60's. I remember the required party hats, cake and ice cream shared with friends, and the party dresses. Fun memories of long ago. We did not have many sweets at our house as my dad was diabetic and at that time it was not something managed as well as it is today. So birthdays were extra special as mom would bake a cake, and for birthdays it was always Angel Food cake topped with chocolate frosting. I celebrated my 58th year this past week and I seem to get more reminiscent of days gone by as the years continue to fly past.
So this month's block had to be Angel Food Cake.
This block goes together pretty quickly with
piecing techniques we have gotten very familiar with by now.

Now for your added treat, here is a recipe for Angel Food Cake with chocolate frosting from Suzanne Cowden on her blog Flour Arrangement. While her recipe is for a tasty, from scratch version she walks you through with a detailed step-by-step if you want to give it a try. It is fun to read how she believed topping the cake with chocolate frosting was a no-no until her husband won the battle and converted her to this great combination of flavors frmo the past.

I know what you mean. I have stacks and stacks of old photos-such a wonderful way to reminisce.
