Cake... ♥

This has always been one of my favorite decorations in my kitchen...
not that I NEED a reminder to

and with my RED and GREEN batter here...
you probably see where this is going...

When I bake a Bundt cake and it doesn't STICK to the pan,
I sing and shout and run about....

Bundt cake pans and I have had a LOVE/HATE relationship for years.

When I saw this beauty over at FULL PLATE THURSDAY
this morning, 
I had all the ingredients and just got busy and baked it.

Into the freezer....
and on Christmas Eve when all our family will be here,
I'll glaze it. 

Recipe here

Sparkle and bling...

I LUV IT  ♥ ♥ ♥

If mine is HALF as pretty as HER cake when I cut it on
I will be so happy.

  1. I love cakes made in a bundt pan. I always make a Paula Deen pound cake in mine old heavy bundt cake pan
    I'm sure your cake will be beautiful inside. I am trying to get a head start on my baking also,even sent out ALL my Christmas cards this morning LOL first for me

  2. Mr. Sweet knew what he was doing when he married you. The way to a man's heart is through his stomach.

  3. BJ -- I love it! Love it SO much! I'm getting so into the Christmas spirit, decking the halls, really loving every second of it! But this cake would make me jump for joy!

  4. BJ, My gosh what a pretty cake. Haha what a funny sign. You crack me up girl. Can you believe I am still working on my tree...I must be the slowest ornament hanger around. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  5. Your cake is so festive! Go BJ!

  6. Very Christmasy cake! You are smart to bake ahead. Oh, yes, I am pretty kidnap proof! Ha!

  7. So pretty! That would be a good cake for my son's birthday - he was in my Christmas stocking 18 years ago...(:

  8. Stay safe - eat cake will have me chuckling for awhile! Always a fun visit with you!

  9. Love the idea of a red and green cake. I am sure it will be just as pretty.

    God bless.

  10. Oh my, what a beautiful cake. I finally used that can of pumpkin I told you I'd bought and made it into a cake. Found a great recipe on the internet. . . now don't laugh. . .it called for olive oil!!! A perfect idea for here!

  11. I LOVE you and that freezer of yours!!! It must be chock full of all kinds of goodness!!

  12. I saw the post title and thought it was written especially for me.

  13. Pertty cake! Ive always liked that little saying about weight and cake. Ive even believed in it sometimes with my worried mommy mind. Ha.
    I make my banana breads and pound cakes in the bundt pan. I have a nonstick one but my favorite is an old worn vinage one from grandmaws kitchen.

  14. Oooh bj, if I had that cake sign in my kitchen I would be eating constantly! I certainly don't need any reminders to indulge as CAKE is my favorite way to intake calories! Hope you show us the inside of your cake when you cut it. I wouldn't have the patience to wait! Linda

  15. Oh yeah, I agree, let's eat cake!! And this one will surely get us on the way to the "MERRY AND BRIGHT".

  16. What a nice cake for Christmas. I am sure yours will look just as pretty. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  17. LOL bj!!!! Your cake looks festive and soooo yummy.
    Happy Weekend.

  18. Oh, how pretty!!! I am sure yours will be wonderful! Love your sign, too! Have a wonderful weekend, sweet friend. :)

  19. are so funny. I know the feeling of having a "love-hate" relationship with those bundt pans....but yours looks perfect! Good idea to plan ahead - I was thinking of making some cookies this afternoon, until i laid down on the couch (it went downhill from there)!

  20. No mistaking that is a Christmas Cake. I like it...

  21. Such a pretty cake and I know it will be delicious.

  22. A beautiful post! Can't wait to see how it turns out with the glaze. You must be great to party with.

  23. I know whose door I will be knocking on come Christmas Eve. The cake is so festive.

    Happy Pink Saturday, dear BJ.♥

  24. LOVE the sign at the end of this post!! So funny.

  25. Oh my . . . does that look wonderful!
