If you like pound cake Mother Myrick’s Lemon Lulu is to die for. I once pursued the ‘perfect’ pound cake recipe which required baking about 50 pound cakes! It was a heavenly endeavor. I bought so much butter the price dropped. The Lemon Lulu does not disappoint. It arrives fresh, can be frozen for ages, and is ready to use when you’re in a pinch. The small serves 8 and is $29.95. The large serves 14 and is $39.95. Mother Myrick’s also makes yummy toffee, brittles and caramels.

Our friend and subscriber Eileen put me on to Sticky Toffee Pudding cakes. She is never wrong when she raves about something. These are just as delectable as they sound. A sticky Toffee Pudding is a moist cake onto which you pour warm toffee sauce. Eat ‘as is’ or with ice cream. A tiny slice will suffice because it is really rich! Words fail me…
One 18 oz. cake with a 12 oz. jar of sauce serves 6 – 8 people.
The cakes range in price from $28.00 – $50.00.
