Party prep

Party prep for a 90th birthday party.  My mother-in-law will be turning 90 in May, but won't be here in Texas, but in Georgia with her other son's family.  So, we put together a little pre party.

My Mom was in town also and she and Nickie helped chop.  Nickie chopped the pecans for two cakes and my Mom chopped the sweet potatoes, yes, for a cake too.
 These two pairs of hands have seen a lot of chopping and baking over the years.

 Three cakes for one party.  Cheesecake, Praline Pecan and Sweet Potato Cinnamon Roll cake.

More on all the fancy and fun from the party later.

Recipes now though... below.  I found both cake recipes on Pinterest and can be found on my board, Sugar and everything nice.  Thank you Cheesecake Factory for making my life easier with the yummy cheesecake, all I had to do was purchase the cake put out a few toppings.

Take a look at comments on this blog, may help with preperations

Changes to the above recipe, my family prefers butter cake mix instead of the Praline cake mix (which can be hard to find anyway)
Butter Sauce can be served on the side.  But, for the party and mess factor, I poured the sauce over the entire cake.  


  1. What a wonderful party and GOOD treats! I love that you had two sets of beautiful hands helping you chop. xo Diana
