First, I did what I had to do.
That is....bake a cake for a neighbor in need.
I knew a whole cake was probably going to be too big,
and I Selfishly wanted some too.
You can't really give someone a cake with a piece or pieces taken out
can You????

So I bought another bundt pan and
I DO like to DO THAT!!

Instead of one cake.
I made two...but I didn't double the recipe!
It worked!
I now have two little cakes
that still look cute.
A little short....but cute.

Thanks to Barb for posting the recipe.
and thanks to my nose for figuring out
WHEN to get them out of the oven.
They didn't need to be in there for a whole hour
when they're this little!!!

After doing what I had to do.
I did what I'd been really wanting to do.

This is my stack of projects.
I have a few going at one time.
I have what I call
"quilting A.D.D."
A wonderful thing to have, by the way! ;)
These baskets help keep everything together.

I got to play with some scraps.

Now I have a pile of blocks.

Highlighting that old.


  1. Oh, good idea to make two cakes from one recipe...nice to know it works out, I'll have to try that sometime! Yum...looks tasty!

  2. One for you, one for me! Good idea, I hate having a whole humongous cake around anyway! What a great idea for WIPs too!

  3. Love those scrappy blocks! I have 2 small bundt tins, often we eat one & freeze the other.

  4. Great scrap blocks. I think scraps must be the very best part of quilting. First you make a quilt with the fabric you buy, then the next one from the scraps is free. Can't beat that.

  5. Very nice! What I do with a cake that is too big for whoever I'm taking it to is to cut it into slices and place them on a nice plate with Saran wrap over them! This way I can give some to more than one person or family (or maybe just keep a little for us!!;) )!

  6. Great idea on the cake, but love love love those vintage scrappy blocks! I need to do some of those with some vintage scraps I've got....

  7. Those baskets look great for storing WIPs; they don't take up as much space as boxes with lids. Maybe my table-tower would benefit from a little basket investment.
    Brilliant idea to make 2 small cakes instead of one big. Most of the time only half the cake gets eaten anyway, and this way you can put a whole cake in the freezer instead a half eaten one - if you're not giving it away. I can almost smell yours all the way up here.-)

  8. clever cake! what a good idea! Taking food to other people does require a different way of cooking and planning :)

  9. Oh my goodness, those look delicious! Makes me want to go and bake, bake, bake. And taste test too, of course.
