Milky Way Cake is a classic recipe and there are versions of it all over community cookbooks and the Internet. Some are layer cakes with marshmallow frosting; some are sheet cakes with boiled fudge icing. But I like this simple Bundt version. This is a sweet cake, with a lovely caramel undernote [...]
I have always loved interactive food – where everyone gets to participate in the making and serving of a meal. The pizza party is a great example of this – roll out the dough, choose the toppings, assemble the pizza and watch while they bake. It’s fun for kids and grown-ups alike.
