Orange & Almond Pound

I baked an Orange & Almond Pound cake for a colleague who is recuperating at home from cancer. It was really a heart pain to see her like that. Even though we were not very close all this time, my heart went out to her the moment I heard about her case. I was really sad, and I sms her once a while to cheer her up, and give her all the encouragement that I can. I finally found the courage to ask if I can visit her. Even though she looked differently, she is still as pretty as ever. I made an excuse to bake for her, so that I can visit her. She was happy that I visited her, and liked my cake very much. I tell myself, if I have the time again, I will bake for her again, at least to keep her going and make her happy.


This pound cake will be taught for under my Perfect Pound workshop. Sign up for it now!

You make beutiful pound cakes!
I could tell even without eating them that they are not overly moist, packed and dense and crumbly and buttery! Thank you for sharing!

The cake is extra beautiful because it was made from the heart. I hope your friend gets well soon.
