Vanilla Rich Cake

The month of LOVE is about to arrive! A celebration in which we shower our loved ones with gifts, flowers, that and a heaping amount of sweets. I always felt that February got all the glory compared to the other 11 months, why shouldn’t love have a special day every month?  I know most guys would break into a sweat at this suggestion. I’m married to one of those guys, the ones you see in the card isle on the eve of the 13th…frantically searching for an envelope that will fit the card in hand.  I am totally fine with this, because I have the secret weapon….Sweet Bribery! I have discovered this weapon, and use it quite often, I’ve found that if I make this cake a week before Valentine’s, the gifts are more thoughtful, I may also use this cake as a cover-up for buying something expensive, that I need him distracted from…..Enjoy!
