Cake in the Clouds

We were all grumpy when we took our Victoria sponge up to Whitetop, but just being there lifted spirits.  Weekends are so difficult for us--so much to do and expect.

If you look closely, you can see the harvestman (or Grandad spider, as the children call them) carrying off a crumb of the cake. The fog only got heavier while we were there and it rained all the way home. Our moods were lifted only a moment, it seemed, but it was still nice up there.

That photo at the bottom is just breathtaking. I'm still longing for it to get cool enough to get out again. I'm wondering if we could manage some early morning hikes now? Nature is always a good cure for the grumpies. You will have to tell me more about this sponge cake. It looks delicious. I've never made one. - Stacey

Mike took it. It's such a special place. I wish I could share it with my online friends. The sponge cake was very easy--there's one in Festivals, Family, and Food, too, that is pretty similar. If you decide to make this one, I can send you the buttercream recipe. It was actually just right.

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
