Dessert Medley

I am excited to share another painting on 20 lines, which I’ve named Dessert Medley. Painting delicious food always intrigued me. The many colors that could be found in whipped cream (beyond white) were fun to discover. Dusted sugar and strawberry hives required a toothpick.

I always photograph my reference before painting them. I admit that choosing delicious food has advantages, because there are leftovers once I’ve taken my pictures!

My photo reference - not nearly as beautiful!

Wanda Clark Pound Cake

This has been a community wide favorite for generations!

Preheat over to 325 degrees. Coat pan with shortening and sprinkle thoroughly with flour.

3 cups sugar

3 cups shortening

3 cups PLAIN flour

6 eggs

1 cup milk

3 tsp lemon or vanilla flavoring

Cream sugar and shortening, add eggs one at a time. Sift flour and add alternately with milk.

Empty into a bundt style pan. Don’t cheat and “Pam” style spray-it is bad to stick!

Cook for 1 hour & 25 minutes. Let Cool, empty onto large plate.

For holiday variety, remove  1/2 to 1 cup of each desired color, mix each color in small bowl with food coloring (to desired color). Put in a cup or so of regular color cake batter in pan, spoon your colors around the batter in your cake pan, one at a time. Top with the rest of the regular batter. Each piece will have its own design when cut!
