Sweets To The Sweet; It's Sweetest Day!

Happy Sweetest Day!

I know, I posted cookies yesterday and yes, I will be posting this week's Cookbook Party entries tomorrow but, how oh how could I let Sweetest Day just breeze by without sharing one itsy bitsy recipe?



Fairy Cakes

...Legend has it that Sweetest Day was established around 1922 by Herbert Birch Kingston, a Cleveland, Ohio, candy company employee who wanted to bring happiness to the lives of those who often were forgotten. Kingston and others distributed candy and small gifts to orphans, shut-ins and others to show them someone cared...(Hallmark)


"See" ya tomorrow! this:)

  3. I've never ate a fairy cake before. That custard stuff on the inside looks really good too. I'm crazy about creams and sauces so I think I would really like this dessert. I wonder if it's like a lava cake?
