20 Questions


Last week I posted about Rich's birthday, and mentioned I made a cake with diet coke.  There was some interest in that recipe, so here it is in a nutshell.  You can buy any box cake and replace the water and oil with a can of diet soda.  For the chocolate, I used diet coke.  For a white cake I would recommend diet cream soda.  For a spice cake, diet ginger ale.  Aside from the diet soda, follow the recipe and the cake turns out yummy and it is now very low in fat.  Bonus!  I also have a recipe for a poke cake.  You can find that one here.  It is very tasty and again, very low in fat!  The serving size is quite big.  The poke cake needs to stay in the fridge.

Now normally on this day I would pose a question. However in the light of the fact that I have gained some new followers, I thought I would turn over the questioning to you.  I have seen a few other bloggers doing this and it was well received.   So, ask away my friends.  Ask me anything.  Just remember this a family oriented place, and my mother reads it!  Fire at will!

I have seen other bloggers doing the question thing to and have thought about it doing it myself.

So here are a few:

What is the most embarrassing thing that ever happened to you?

If there is one thing you could go back and do over what would it be?

If someone gave you $1000 what is the first thing you would buy/do with it?

Far out! Can you use a can of regular soda? The diet kind does weird things to me...

Question: Do you remember the name of the song we chose for a radio dedication to our three "friends"? ;)

I make those diet soda cakes all the time. They are yummy and easy, too. Have you ever used a yellow cake mix and diet mt. dew? It's very good if you like lemon.

Diet coke in a cake. This is revolutionary to me! I'm pretty sure I spelled that wrong, but whatev!

I never heard of that. My husband only drinks diet soda so he will love this idea.
