She was acake baker and liked to fix cakes for special occasions ,church functions, birthdays, holi- days - or just to have incase someone dropped by. She usually made sheet cakes, but on occasion she made bndt cakes. She didn't do the two-layer cake. She thought they were too much trouble. Once she finally found a sheet cake pan with a lid, she never was with- out one. She had several with little pieces of masking tape on the bottom with her name on it. She never took the tape off, so it got baked and washed with the pan until it was a part of it. Mom had several that were family favorites, in- cluding rum cake, fresh apple cake, apple stack cake, "D--- Cake" and the one I liked best, the two-egg yel- low cake with •cocoa icing. Daddy's used to say his favorite was the "fell" cake. He would smell a cake bak- ing and say "I hope that's a 'fell' cake!" When I asked why, he said it was because "a cake that fell in the middle is the only one we get to eat. If it turns out OK, she'll take it to church." A favorite to take on trips was Mom's "D--- Cake." It's just a plain chocolate cake with chocolate icing made from scratch. Once when we were packing to go to the beach, Jerry was grumbling about all the food that Mom had fixed to take. "Myrtle Beach has stores," he said. He does like to eat .ore=down there because everything is fried. Anyway Mom had her cake in her pan with the lid on it, and when Jerry was trying to close the trunk, the cake fell out and splattered on his sneakers. "D--- Cake." I once madea dried apple stack cake to impress Morn. I set it out in my sun room to co01 and the dog bit a hunk out of it. I cut half of the cake away, and took the good half to show her anyway. She never knew, or she would never have let me bring it into the house. The dog or the cake. She liked to make a rum cake for Christmas, though I don't remember eating rum cake when I was a kid. She didn't bake rum cake for things at church, though I'm not sure why. Mom would not go into an ABC store for religious reasons, but she would send someone else. She sent my brother-in-law Sam when he was around, but once she was out of rum and had no alternative but to ask me.I guess she thought I was strong and wouldn't be tempted to buy other strong drink. The only requiremem &es was that I had to go to the Sylva ABC store and not the Bryson City store because she did not want me to be recognized in Bryson City. • Now I've lived in Cullo- whee for more than 40 years. I tried to explain that if I went in the Sylva store there would be people from I Brown Mountain. Kitchen By Doaa West Bryson City who were trying not to be recognized and would recognize me. Then they'd tell people they saw me coming out of the Sylva ABC store with a brown bag. If I were to go into the Bryson City store, then no one would recognize me as her daughter. She never got that. Anyhow we went to the Sylva store one day to get her rum. She slipped me a bill and slid down in the seat, even thought she didn't really have to slide, be- cause she was so short you couldn"t see her over the door anyway. When she drove, it looked like there was no one in the car. I asked her what kind she wanted, and she whispered loudly, "rum." As I opened the door to the store, I noticed she had given me a $5. Even I know that $5 is not enough to buy anything except one of the tiny bottles, but I went ahead to get her rum. I asked the  cashier what the preferred "Granny Rum" was for i'um cakes, and he went back and got the cheapest bottle on the shelf. "This is it," he said. I don't remember the name, but I added a few dol- lars to it and came out of the store yelling "Is this the rum you wanted, Morn?" She didn't sit up until we made it to the Swain County line. My niece made a rum cake for Christmas, and I believe it had good rum in it. It was wonderful. El- len H0taling made a fresh apple cake for New Year's with Mom's recipe, except she replaced the milk with soy milk because she's allergic. I believe it is the best ever. But my all time favorite is the two-egg yellow cake, which is in all the cook- books. Morn would often make one in the evening after dinner, usually in the winter, and she would bake it in a big cast-iron frying pan. While it was baking she would make the cocoa icing, which was a stick of butter, a cup of cocoa, 2 cups of sugar, 1 teaspoon of vanilla and enough milk to make it thin. She poured this over the cake while it was hot, and we ate it up in a sitting. It wasn't a fell cake, but it was my favorite. I've never been one to make cakes, but now that Mom is gone, I feel like I need to take up the
