Ugh, moving is such a pain and it’s never easy! I have moved so many times, I could be a professional. That’s why we need things like Pound Cake with Champagne Glaze in our lives. Last week I received an email from Roxana from Roxana’s Home Baking inviting me to attend a virtual housewarming party for Ashton of the Something Swanky blog. Ashton moved into a new house this week and since we can’t be there in person, we are throwing her a virtual housewarming party! Welcome to your new home, Ashton!
Although I have never met Ashton in person, I am a huge fan of hers (blog stalker). Besides creating amazing desserts (I swear by her poke cake recipes), Ashton provides her readers with extremely helpful and easy to follow design tutorials. I have learned so much from her already; I am hoping to get the chance to meet her in person someday!
To welcome Ashton to her new house, I made my grandmother’s classic pound cake with a champagne glaze. After all, champagne is the best way to celebrate, right?! My mom raves about this pound cake and now I know why. It’s dense and full of vanilla flavor. My Grandmother always baked with margarine, so I figured she must have done that for a reason. My mom says it’s “the best pound cake she has ever had.”
