1984- 33rd Birthday

1984- 33rd Birthday

Milton and I had been together for a couple of years by this time, living on Waller Street. He is cooking something at the beginning of this video. Then it cuts to a birthday cake that looks like it probably came from the original Just Desserts, when they had their store on Church Street. They made an incredible raspberry-walnut-carrot cake. Eventually Just Desserts would go “corporate” and quality took a nosedive and this incredible cake was no longer available anywhere. Over thirty years later, I would try to bake one from scratch and did have some success!! I found a recipe that required five pounds of shredded carrots and tons of walnuts. I made a raspberry glaze to go between the layers. It was incredible and reminiscent and an homage to the best cake I have ever eaten in my life!!
