National Sponge Cake Day!

National Sponge Cake Day!

What better desert to eat on a hot day, than sponge cake with cool whipped cream and cold strawberries! YUM!
Today is National Sponge Cake day, a day when we can celebrate the sweet cake day by eating the treat shamelessly!
The sponge cake was created in the mid- 16th century by an Italian chef for a Spanish lord. The first version of the cake was more like biscuits, then it spread to England where they used beaten eggs to make the cake rise. It is widely written that the Victoria Sponge was Queen Victoria’s favorite cake.
So, bake a sponge cake or buy one, dollop some cool whipped cream and dash with strawberries on it and enjoy! Something that will go great with the desert is Skinny Coffee to make it a guilt free day!
Be Blessed,


Coki-Mo’s Hot Chocolate’s Best Friend!


These little snow buddies are just heartwarming. Who could resist such a friendly cup of cocoa?

There are several ways of preparing a cup of hot chocolate but adding little favorites makes a plain cup of hot chocolate into something fun. I call them Coki-Mo’s. A little snow buddy made out of marshmallows that’s guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.

As a little girl, we didn’t have instant hot chocolate, we had to make it the old fashion way. (I’ve included a recipe at the end of the article.)

Things you need to make your little Mo.

1 pack of hot chocolate or (There is a homemade recipe below.)

1 regular size marshmallow cut in half

Orange tubed icing

Black tubed icing


Cut regular size marshmallow in half. (You can do the whole bag and make a fleet of Coki-Mo’s).

Use the black icing in a tube and dot the marshmallow to make eyes and mouth. Don’t worry about being perfect. People are different shape and sizes so why not your little Mo.

Use orange icing to make nose.

Prepare Hot Chocolate (either instant or homemade)

Place Coki-Mo’s in hot chocolate

You can also use the Coki-Mo’s as a delightful gift.

Place a pack of instant chocolate in to a plastic bag along with the Mo’s add peppermint to add color.

Tie a ribbon around top, label it Coki-Mo.
