This morning I made Marissa's Conference Cake. She learned how at Sheffield Middle School and it is by far my favorite. Hers turns out perfectly everytime...it's taken me longer but I finally got it. Today Robert said, there's one piece left, do you want it? I said, Nah, you can have it. When he walked back to the breakfast table I had to chuckle...this 'one piece left' was actually 1/4 of the 8" pan. But he is correct...it's best fresh and warm.
