They call me Mrs.Sweet for a reason!  With my incredible mother’s help via Facetime and Kroger’s pick and delivery service, I was able to bake a cake and work from home at the same time!  I ordered my groceries, and they were at my door within the hour.  Soon after, I baked one of my favorite delights to indulge in: “The Sock It To Me” cake! This is what you call “From store to table.”
