In my spare time (yes, that’s a joke), I coach Junior High Cheerleading at my old high school. I so enjoy getting to share my old love of cheerleading with the young girls who are just getting started and have so much love for the sport. One of our fundraisers is to raffle off a cake during the games. The Varsity girls sell tickets for the cake throughout the first half of our game and we draw a winner at halftime.
I’ll admit I completely forgot about the cake for our first home game until the day before. I had to work until 5. We had practice until 7. Bryan was working and I had to do our whole nighttime routine by myself…ahhh. So I decided to throw together a pound cake. Even though a pound cake takes longer to bake, I knew that I would save the extra hands on time required to make icing for another type of cake.
The pound cake turned out beautifully. I even made an extra half recipe to make a pound cake loaf for us to keep at home. And the girls sure enjoyed licking the beaters when I was done.
