Even the best-laid plans to put out a newsletter on the first of the month sometimes fall by the wayside. Family commitments kept me from putting this together. I hope you will find it worth the wait.
My 3 year-old grandson loves to help grandma in the kitchen and is especially fond of baking. When I bake alone, I usually bake from scratch. However, with a small child underfoot, I find it much easier to use mixes. Here is a quick and easy cake we made for his sister's tenth birthday!
Prepare cake according to package directions and bake in an oblong 13x9 sheet pan
Remove from oven when done and spread marshmallows over the top of the cake, return to oven for 2-3 minutes until melted slightly.(Oven can be turned off at this time.)
While marshmallows are melting, prepare frosting by scooping into a microwave safe bowl, add cream/milk and heat in microwave for 45 seconds. Stir to combine.
Remove cake from oven and pour melted frosting over cake.
Let set at room temperature until cake cools (1-2 hrs). DO NOT REFRIGERATE. This will harden the marshmallow cream.

About the Book
When globe-trotting photographer Allison Cain comes home to her family ranch in Montana it’s to get to know her nephew and to make amends with the widowed brother-in-law she’s left alone to raise his young son.
Evan Carver could never deny his late wife’s younger sister anything, despite the fact she’s been conspicuously absent over the past three years since her sister’s death. Now she’s home again on what she’s called an extended vacation. Evan’s first concern is for his son, Cody, and how his aunt’s visit will affect the five year old when she decides to return to her high profile career.
Allison has no intention of going back to work. In addition to getting to know Cody, she needs to confess her biggest secret to Evan. How do you tell the man you’ve always loved that you’re not just his son’s aunt, but also his mother?
