Brenda; What memories you stirred. I remember receiving those Lucky Locket dolls. I had forgotten all about those until I saw your post. Barbie was a big part of my Christmas wish list for years. I received the Barbie goes to College Dorm room and sweet shop one year. Merry Christmas! Melody
Melody please email me at order@countrystitchesonline.com to receive details on your winnings.

Thank you so kindly to everyone that shared comments of their favorite toys as a child...definitely a walk down memory lane!

Red Velvet Cake is traditionally our Christmas dessert at my parent's home. My mother has made this cake for Christmas as long as I can remember. Sister Linda baked this cake this year and was enjoyed by all! Mom used to make the cake from scratch, but now uses the Duncan Hines Red Velvet cake mix with great results & so much easier! The secret to a good Red Velvet cake is all in the frosting. Today I am going to share our families Red Velvet Cake Frosting with you.


5 T. flour
1 cup milk
3 T. powdered sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar

Boil flour and milk until thick, stirring constantly. Cool. Cream butter and shortening. Beat 4 minutes, slowly adding sugar. Mix in flour paste. Stir in powdered sugar and vanilla. NOTE - if you prefer a thicker layer of frosting make a batch and a half for frosting a sheet cake.
Bake the Duncan Hines Red Velvet cake mix according to directions on box. Bake in a jellyroll pan. Allow cake to thoroughly cool. Frost with frosting. Keep cake chilled & enjoy!
