Dear Hershey's,

How do I love thee?  Let me count the ways -- chocolate chips, cocoa, your Moderation Nationtm,  Together Countstm and so many more reasons! Their products are a major part of our Chocolate Whiskey Cake.  I have tried other brands of cocoa and chips, but nothing beats Hershey products in my book.  Be sure to visit their site: www.hersheys.com.

One sweet memory my children have is of me making "real" hot cocoa for them during the winters when they were small and I made them come indoors to thaw out.  After a "cuppa" Hershey's Cocoa and 30 minutes of warmth they were always ready to head back outside.  Nowadays they will occasionally drink instant cocoa, but a "cuppa" of the real deal takes them back to their childhood.  This is true for me and probably some of you as well.  My grandmother, Katie Connally,  used Hershey's Cocoa when I was growing up in Connecticut.  Her kitchen was always cozy during the fall and winter seasons.  The feeling of being safe and warm at her table with my cup of cocoa while looking out the big window as the snow fell is a cherished memory.   While it is still cold, make a Hershey's hot cocoa memory at your house.  You'll be glad you did.

Everyday Is A New Day

I love making cakes but I really love making cakes for customers!  Several are due tomorrow, which is wonderful.  Not so wonderful?  Getting so excited about the orders and overflowing the measuring spoon with your EXPENSIVE vanilla (down the drain we go!) and spilling the chocolate chips.  Sigh.  Good thing the cakes came out beautifully which made me smile again!  Yay!

Shopping With A Purpose

A-shopping I will go, a-shopping I will go...you know the rest!  How exciting that business is booming and I need to add more equipment.  Walmart, here I come.  Springform pans, parchment paper, 20 ton (!) bags of flour and sugar are within my sights.  And of course, a stop at the "package store" for the vital ingredient in our whiskey & rum cakes.  Bliss!   

Baking is such a peaceful endeavor.  Melting, stirring, blending and then the lovely scent that fills the air.  Customers constantly talk of how wonderful our whiskey and rum cakes smell and pairing a slice of our cake with a cup of coffee.  The perfect marriage.  Place an order today and enjoy it for yourself!  katieconnallyconfections@yahoo.com or contact me through our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Katie-Connally-Confections/136787046498498?ref=hl

Looking forward to hearing from you and bringing you your own delectable cake.  :)
