2016 WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge – Nostalgia

2016 WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge

What kinds of experiences stir emotions for the past within you?

Baking a cake always makes me feel nostalgic and always makes me miss my Mom.
My Mom was one of the best cook and bakers that I’ve ever known. I’ve so many fond memories of her culinary creations.
Whenever Mom would put a cake in the oven, she’d warn us not to walk heavy, jump, stomp or run through the house because it would make the cake fall.
With a smile in my heart for Mom, I usually ask my family to walk lightly when I have a cake in the oven.

 Wishing you all sweet nostalgic thoughts
& fun with the WP photo challenge!

*Just a note
I’m guessing a store-bought box cake mix wouldn’t be as apt too fall because they’re so mathematically engineered for maximum results.
I suppose a cake made from scratch with plain flour, baking soda or baking powder might have a bigger chance of falling.

  1. One of my dear friends tells about one of her memories of her childhood: Her dad really liked the edges of the cake to be “crusty”, so when he knew her mom had a cake in the oven, he would stomp around the house, slam doors, etc!

    • ~rofl~ Thanks Dianna
      That’s one of the funniest stories that I’ve ever heard about cakes falling. Thanks so much for the early morning laugh. What a wonderful way to start off the day!
      I hope your & MM’s Sunday is a fun one.


  2. Just the smell of a cake baking is nostalgic. I thought I might do some travels but my husband could not get off work just yet so I am back to my blog and I will post something tomorrow for this challenge 🙂

      I’m sorry about your trip and break. It’s good to know you’ll still be blogging, I would have missed you. I look forward to seeing your Nostalgic photo for the challenge. 🙂


    • Hi Sheryl
      I can’t remember any of Mom’s cakes falling either. I remember loving being still and walking softly because I knew a delicious cake was soon to be served. 🙂
