Make This!!

How was your Easter? Ours was wonderful! We spent the day with Omid's parents & our good friends who are like family to us. The weather cooperated & the food was delicious. We couldn't have asked for a better day!

 Prep work done: taking a rest before the guests arrive.

Nas was here in 'spirit,' Notice the N!

 Omid & his parents.

The girls! Naseem: you were missed!!
 For dessert, we had the Neiman Marcus Cake. Paula Deen also has a version called Ooey Gooey Butter Cake. This cake was reeaally goooood. I will definitely make it again. I found the recipe via Pinterest (surprise, surprise!), which led me to the blog: My Kitchen in the Rockies.

A tiny slice will do ya!
This cake is super rich! Cut the richness with some whipped cream & fresh fruit.

Note: I used a boxed white cake mix. If you do that, just follow the directions in the linked recipe & NOT the direction on the box. I also had to let my cake bake for about 45 minutes before it was slightly set in the center.
