Naked Cake and “Foodie” Haiku for OSI ;<)

naked cake haiku

Being the avid foodie/cook that I am, when I saw the One Single Impression prompt for this Sunday: Naked, wouldn’t you know it:

 NAKED CAKE came to mind. 😉

This story goes a long way back in my blogging history.

Suffice to say, the cake pictured above was named Naked Cake many moons ago by Tania Densiuk, a (former, sadly not blogging anymore)  blog pal who also shared a love of all things food.

I hope you like my culinary haiku! 😉

And here’s a link to the complete recipe for this oh, so yummy cake from my cookbook and also one of my foodie/green newspaper columns.

Valentine’s  day is just around the corner, you might want to keep this one in mind to make for your sweetie!

Wishing You a Fun and Happy Week! 🙂
