Obviously with the amount of rainbow cakes I have in my arsenal, I’m a sucker for rainbows. I didn’t know that I loved leopard print until I started on this cake.
Today is my nephew’s third birthday, and one of my BFF’s birthday’s as well. It is the perfect day to make these pancakes for them. Unfortunately, neither of them live close enough for me to drive them to them to celebrate. Well, I guess I could drive them there, but they wouldn’t be very good after a day in the car. Hmm, never mind.
I used to make this cake with my Grandma J. when she lived with us in Cranbrook. It’s a fairly old recipe, and it’s been done many times, and has many different names. Why did I do it if it’s been done before? Because it brings back memories, and it tastes amazing!!
When I was a kid, I loved Nerds! There’s nothing much better than “retro” candies from the 80′s! Nostalgia makes everything taste better, am I right? Combining cake and the crunch of Nerds is such a novel treat!
