★~ National Cake Decorating Day:
Today we put the icing on the cake and maybe a pink rose of two. I love pink icing roses. Celebrating today is a piece of a cake, just bake a cake and decorate it. Or just buy a decorated cake. In any case wither you bake and decorate a cake, or buy a decorated cake–Today, you can have your cake and eat it too.
★~ National Bring Your Teddy Bear To Work Day: (always 2nd Wednesday in October)
“What day is it?”
It’s today,” squeaked Piglet.
My favorite day,” said Pooh.”
Today is a beary special day. Take your Teddy Bear to work or school and introduce him to your friends and co-workers and don’t forget to have honey at lunch because bears love honey!
★~ National Angel Food Cake Day:
Angel food cake iced with whipped cream and covered in strawberries is my favorite cake. Fluffy, light, moist . . . heavenly! I buy the cake at the grocery store and ice it at home, but I have also been known to eat it plain on my way home from the grocery store. I have tried to make them from scratch with less than spectacular results. Polish your halo and have a piece of angel food cake today!Angel Food Cake recipe
