3 cups of sugar for love.

1 cup of crisco for family.

2 sticks of butter to show the sticky sides of love and family.


3 cups of flour because we all need friends.

1/2 tsp of baking soda since our core beliefs guide us.

Pinch of salt for life’s unpredictability.



1 cup of milk because we all need nourishment and education.

6 eggs for new life and change.

Flavoring to signify that we are all unique individuals.


Grease and flour the pan then add the batter

Bake for 1 hour 30min at 325℉

Don’t forget frosting also known as grandchildren and puppy kisses.

And for that I think we’re good enough.
