My older sister, Linda, is celebrating a birthday, today. Happy Birthday, Linda! Although we live several states away, I am thinking of her today. If I lived closer, I would make her favorite German Chocolate cake and take it over. I remember our mom making German Chocolate Cake from scratch for her birthday. She would serve it on a beautiful Fostoria crystal cake pedestal. This picture was taken in Ferndale, Michigan at our aunt and uncle's house, Hank and Mabel Glover. I am guessing it to be around 1960-61. I don't remember the dolls names. One of my favorite memories from childhood with Linda include the time we put on a play in the garage and invited neighbors to watch. When I was in college, Linda would come and visit. I always appreciated those visits. I hope your birthday is special, just like you are.
Even though I haven't made your Banana Cake recipe yet, I would love your recipe for the German Chocolate Cake as well. Hopefully, you will post it during a Christmas post. Please, please. And, Happy Birthday to your sister. What a darling photo of you two with your dolls.
Thanks for the wonderful post on your blog. I wish I lived closer and I'd be over for that German chocolate cake!! We have a lot of great childhood memories. Great pic -- I remember we always had matching dresses.
