Ruby Slipper Cake

I made a great cake this morning for our young women at church. I promised my friend Melissa at Mommysite that I would post it. I think secretively she was trying to get me to update my blog. I found this recipe online and thought it sounded really interesting. It turned out delicious and the aroma permeated every room I took it into. I kept telling my son and husband that they couldn't have any. I promised I would make another one for them tonight but I was feeling pooped out and took a long nap instead. This cake is very pretty with red ribbons of color running through it; very pretty for a bunch of giggly girls. Keep an eye out for photos unless Melissa is faster than me. Hint, hint!

Ruby Slipper Cake


1 package yellow cake mix
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup water (I added an extra 1/8 cup of water because it seemed dry and was hard to mix.)
2 eggs
3 ounces raspberry Jell-O powder
Powdered sugar for serving (optional)


Combine cake mix, sour cream, water and eggs in large bowl. Blend, then beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Spoon 1/3 of the batter into a well-greased tube or bundt pan. Sprinkle with half of the dry Jell-O. Repeat layers, then spread remaining batter over gelatin to cover. Bake in preheated 350-degree oven 45 to 50 minutes or until cake bounces back when pressed with finger. Cool in pan 5 minutes. Turn out onto serving plate and finish cooling. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving, if desired.

New President

Thomas S. Monson, the new President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has his own website! How cool is that?

Sorry I haven't posted in sooooo long. I started school on the 28th of January and I am taking 14 units! On top of that I've been spending a lot of time on our Young Women's program with lots of activities and lots of fun and laughing. If I didn't get to hang out with these great youth I might lose my sanity. They always give me lots of reasons for laughing. Excellent therapy! Anyway, so much for having time to work on my new year's resolution to blog more. Right!
