I'm back! And there's 1960s wedding cakes to share

It has been a long long time since I blogged last. It has been a tough year for me. A divorce, a house fire and so on it would blow you away! I'm finally getting back to normal somewhat not totally there yet but I have some quiet time to start blogging again something I love. This is a new fresh start and a good start off to my first post of 2016. I'm in the mood for love who isn't?! And with love I mean wedding cakes from the 1960's! Who doesn't love a vintage cake especially a wedding cake. I just adore them everything vintage is just so awesome to me. Here to share are some favorites of vintage wedding cakes. Does anyone have any vintage wedding cakes to share?? If so please comment below and send the picture and story to and I will post your story and photo on a new post related to this one!! Send away! 👰🏻🎂

-Orange Mallow Yam Yums-1977

Kraft marshmallows, my favorite! I usually make the candied yams but with oranges too? Might be actually good! It is almost my favorite time of year (the fall!) and yams/sweet potato's are my favorite in the fall, and the Orange mallow yambake I actually might try!

Ambrosia Fruit salad- A retro summer dessert

I had this on my other blog, but it is oh so good I had to add it to this one!

My husband would always mention this fruit salad his step-dad used to make on the 4th of July every year...but he couldn't put his finger on what it we searched the internet and found it HERE

He was so sure this was the recipe! So we ran to the super market and got all the ingredients..and long to be hold it was it! HURRAY! I have never tasted it before, and when I did I was hooked.
It is the perfect dessert for the summer, especially on those hot days.

I of course used my Butterprint 4 qt pyrex mixing bowl =)

NOTE: I used DelMonte fruit cocktail & Pineapple chunks, also used Kraft mini marshmallows!

Party Cheese dip

Well another recipe I tested out from

The author Ruth it is her mother's recipe and looked and sounded so tasty, I just had to try it out!

Here is the direct link to the party cheese dip HERE

It is so simple and easy to make, you will never have store bought again!

NOTE: What is pictured is what I put in the bowl, I have much much more left that is why it says it serves 8.
