Cheerwine Cake recipe and a think you!

Before I get into the recipe I want to think everyone that commented and payed for my family when my dad died. I have been trying to get caught back up and didn't add a think you post yet. So, I want to think you guys for all the cards, prayers and thoughts for me and my family!

I live in the town where Cracker Barrel was born, so I have loved their Coke Cola cake for a long time. But once I found Cheerwine I had to see what it would takes like in the cake instead of the Coke Cola. So I gave it a shot a few weeks ago before dad when into the hospital. I wanted to post it then but I didn't have the time. After he came home when my family started to come in I made the cake again. I never thought it would be such a hit. But it's the taste it's so wonderful. If you can get Cheerwine please try this. My bother and sister bought a bunch of Cheerwine and took it home so they could make the cake later.

When one of my sister put it in her mouth she said, "that should be sinful" I have to agree with her on this one LOL.

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
