I come from seriously good genes........I think. My maternal grandmother is one hell of a fire cracker. She had a very unusual and difficult childhood. If not for her feisty character, she probably wouldn't have survived. Her fighting spirit has brought her very far!!
Any who, Gram is in a nursing home now. She took care of herself up until last year. If she didn't take a fall last June, she would STILL be living alone, caring for herself. Amazing, really. We brought the cake to her on her birthday, Friday, April 23rd. She doesn't care for chocolate cake so I made her this French Vanilla cake with my secret recipe buttercream frosting. I added lots of fondant flowers, which she got a kick out of. She thought they were cookies! It was a special day.
Happy Birthday Gram! I wish you many more. I know that I will see your face on TV when you turn 100 :)
