Gumdrop Cake

I love my mom's cooking / baking and loved to help mom in the kitchen. As a young girl, I would pull a chair to the counter and help mom bake. I would get flour all over my shirt. Good times in the kitchen with mom. Gumdrop cake taste great! Yummy! Hope you enjoy making this cake as much as I do.

  1. I love the comment "do not use licorice gumdrops". Probably not the best tasting item you could put in the cake.

    This sounds like a fun baking activity with the kids. Thanks for sharing.
