Thunder Cake

With all of the wet weather here in the Midwest, We have had our share of nerve racking thunder & lighting. So I brought out one of my favorite books Patricia Polacco's Thunder Cake. G really enjoyed learning how to count the distance of a storm by the seconds between the lighting and thunder. Then we made a thunder cake. I have never baked a cake from scratch and that was the only bonus for making this one because G said it just tastes like cake. Oh well.

What a great idea! We read Thunder Cake last week, I think. I'm LOVING Polacco's books. :-)

Love Thunder Cake. You might want to follow it up with a book entitled Whopper Cake. Perhaps G can read it to you. It's a picture book by Karma Wilson. We are very much enjoying it right now.

You cake looks yummy.
