Now, I don't think I personally know any of these type of men. I'm sure they are out there, I just haven't met them, yet.
But my mom has met Bert. I'm not sure who Bert is. I only know that I found this recipe in my mom's recipe box. When I asked her about Bert, she rattled off his family tree and other assorted trivia, and then said this was his favorite cake recipe to make.
I don't know Bert. Don't know if this is his own recipe or if he ripped it off the Internet somewhere. Really, I don't care, because I'm just glad Bert's in the kitchen making and sharing cakes.
