Holidays & Take-out Tuesday, Fat Tuesday!

“Let’s go outside and take some pictures with your Mardi Gras stuff, ”  I said.  “Noooooo, I don’t want to,” replied Super Boy who is currently going through a NO phase.  It’s so charming.

“Come on Big E, sit in the chair and let me take some pictures”  I said.  “CHEEEEEESE,” said Big E.  He is currently going through a CHEESE phase…..I think he gets his picture taken a lot….

“Oh, all right, I’ll do it,” relented Super Boy, who can not stand NOT to be the center of attention

Super Boy and his Dad went to a huge Mardi Gras parade last weekend in Shreveport while they were visiting friends.  “Can you believe some one threw me this WHOLE sack of dubloons, Gigi?”

“That is more Mardi Gras stuff than I have ever seen!!” I exclaimed.  “Yeah, I can’t hardly carry that big ole sack!” said Super Boy

” at, at, at, at, at!” said Big E, translate that to mean “Hat, Hat, Hat, Hat, Hat, as in I want to wear that hat!”

“Hey,” I said to Super Boy, “Do you want me to store your Mardi Gras things with my stuff when I I put it away for next year?”

“Nooo….I don’t think so Gigi….. I think I better keep it with me……”  Smart boy!!

Baileys pound cake thepaintedapron.com

I wanted to make a King Cake to share with you this Fat Tuesday, but this Bailey’s Cake kept calling my name

The cake is made from a simple pound cake batter, butter, eggs, flour, sugar, baking powder and Baileys Irish Cream

Under bake it a minute or two to keep it moist~ because once it looks done, it’s too late and it will be dry.

The glaze is just water, sugar, butter and Baileys Irish Cream.

You can make this whole cake in just a few minutes

Glaze when it’s cool.  Poke the cool cake all over and slowly pour it over, repeating several times and keeping leftover glaze for serving.

  1. I cured my son of the “NO” thing really fast. Every time he would say no, I would tell him that no means yes. He got really confused after awhile and just stopped saying it! Cruel? Perhaps. But it worked! 🙂 That was like 33 years ago. In today’s society, someone would be calling the abuse hotline on me! 🙂

    Bailey’s wins out every time for me, too!!! Looks delicious! That glaze…mmmmmm!!!!!!

    Looks like I’ll be trying another of your recipes. The cake should go well with a corned beef/cabbage St. Patty’s dinner.
