Mom's Cake Plate and a Magic Chef...

Don't you just love this Vintage Ad for Magic Chef?! I thought it would be interesting to tuck in a few Vintage cooking-type ads with this post... since it's actually about cooking... specifically, me cooking!! Below is a photo of my Mom's cake plate 'n cover, complete with dents 'n scratches. She had this for as long as I can recall... and I feel so blessed to now own it. It gets used whenever there's cake in our home... c'mon... let's take a peek!

OK... now I have to confess... I did not do this alone... Dear Husband helped... alot... We had fun together and I feel so lucky that he truly enjoys cooking and baking! He is the "Magic Chef" in my kitchen!!

I added the sprinkles! Can you see Mr. Rooster and his wheelbarrow holding the packets of sweetener? I love his overalls!

In case you're wondering... this is Dot's Peanut Butter Cake! With a few changes... she makes hers with a yellow cake mix, but we used chocolate! I'm not sure about how many layers Dot makes hers, but we opted for four!

For those of you who might not know Dot, you can find her at Picket's Place in blogland. She is one sweet Lady and recently shared this recipe. It is the favorite cake of her sons, aka The Burly Boys!

Thanks for sharing, Dot... All of the guys in my home loved this cake! And, for my second confession, I ate about a third of the slice on my Husband's plate, even though I shouldn't do that, due to my food allergies... And, yes, I did "pay the price" for eating it, but no regrets... it was awesome!! Now, at least I will know how good it is.

If you'd like to find out for yourself... just visit Dot, here, and she'll be more than happy to give you a copy of her recipe! Please tell her that I sent you! Here are a few more Vintage cooking-type ads... Enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by... and I hope you'll find a "Magic Chef" in your kitchen, too!
God bless...
Until another time... Pearl

How'd I miss this one? This looks delicious! Hope you're doing well today. For some reason, I can not comment on your first post with the kitten in the tea cup (maybe you've turned comments off...) in any case, I'm thinking of you and now will be thinking about something sweet all day ;)
