Tea in Vermont

Tea in Vermont...
...with a decadent piece of
Chocolate Mocha Cake

After a day of exploring
Vermont's winter wonderland...
a steamy cup of tea and a slice of cake
is the perfect ending to a delightful trip!

roadside beauty...

Vermont farmland...
a quaint Vermont town...
the Green Mountains...
country barns...
This rich, moist cake was homemade
by the champion pie maker's mama!
Baking is an art in Vermont...
Mocha Frosting
1/2 c sugar
2 t vanilla
1 T instant coffee
1-1/2 c whipping cream
1/4 c unsweet cocoa powder
Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and
beat with an electric mixer until the frosting is
thick and forms peaks when you take out the beater.
Makes enough to spread generously on top, sides,
and between two layers of 8 inch round cake.
I am linking to my favorite tea parties:

Teapot & Tea Things Tuesdays
and my favorite foodie sites...

It's a Keeper

The Kitchenettes ~ A Hospitality Club

Romans 12:13
Pursue the practice of hospitality.

The Kitchenettes is all about teaching and mentoring young girls in the art of hospitality. It is so much more than cooking or doing domestic tasks ~ hospitality is the very heart of God ~ a demonstration of pouring His love onto others. This group of young girls are learning the very nature and character of God as they serve people and sharpen their skills in homemaking.
