But, I Only Came For The Cake!
Hey, have you ever sat a meeting or went to a baby shower or a wedding and all you could do was stare at the cake and wonder when it's going to be cut? Seriously, who will admit they have actually done this. Well, I will and I have. In fact I do it quite often!
My love for cake probably came from my grandmother. She would bake a sheet cake every time we went to her house for dinner. It was always there waiting for me, staring at me, wanting to be cut and devoured. I had to be good and wait for everyone else but that didn't mean I couldn't think it about it or oogle it or yearn for it throughout the entire meal.
Several events held here at The Pfeiffer Cottage Inn involve desert and many of those deserts involve cake. Whether it is a homemade, old-fashioned lemon iced bundt cake by me, a gorgeous piece of art made by Trina, our cake baker and cake decorator, or simply picked up at our farmer's market in downtown Albany, desert is always a part of our bed and breakfast experience.
So, whether it's cake, pie, cookies or whatever I decide to bake for the day, please, just come for the cake! We won't make you wait. It will be waiting for you!
