My Grandma's Coffee Cakes of New England { Review }

I had the privilege of being able to try out one of these delicious cakes from My Grandma's Coffee Cakes of New England. I chose the Cinnamon Walnut cake because it sounded so delicious to me! When the cake arrived at my front door, I was surprised to see a special gift in there - 3 mini cakes of different flavors for me to try out as well! I could not wait to dive in to all this goodness.

The first mini cake I tried that night was the Chocolate Chip one. Little N and I shared it after dinner and it was so yummy! I warmed it up in the microwave for a few seconds and that made it even better. The cake was moist and the chocolate chunks on top were a great addition.

The Cinnamon Walnut cake was what we tried next. It was so delicious! This was perfect for us for a special breakfast treat on the weekend. The cake was so moist and the flavors worked so well with each other. The cake was so big! I was able to take some of it to work with me every morning that week for breakfast - so I really enjoyed every last bite of it.

We were also given a Blueberry mini cake and a Granny Smith Apple mini cake. They were both very good. I am not usually a fan of blueberries, but this cake made me re-think that! The Granny Smith Apple cake was so yummy too and the topping on it was just fantastic!

I was unsure at first how these cakes would taste, since I've never had anything like this shipped, especially so far away! However, I had no reason to worry at all. They tasted like they had just come out of the oven (once I heated them)! If you are looking for a special treat to send someone, then look no further than My Grandma's Coffee Cakes of New England. One (or more!) of these yummy cakes would be perfect to send to someone who just had a baby, had surgery or just needed something to pick them up! Whats a better way to show someone you care than by sending them a delicious and beautiful looking homemade cake!

These cakes are wonderful, not only because of their great taste, but because they can last a while! They have a shelf life (un-refrigerated) of 14 days and can last up to 6 months in the freezer! Also, for those with allergies to nuts, any cake can be baked without walnuts. On top of that, all cakes can be made in a lower fat version, with the exception of the chocolate.

My Grandma's Coffee Cakes of New England has been gracious enough to offer a wonderful discount to all of those who would like to try it!

Five Question Friday ~ 5.6.11

Well, I missed out on Five Question Friday last week because of the tornado's and storms we had here in Alabama. If you missed the post I wrote about it you can check it out here. Thank you to everyone who has donated, spent their time helping others or just prayed! It's going to be a long process rebuilding, but it's nice to know that others care!

On to the fun! Here are my answers to this week's Five Question Friday!

1. Have you ever had roommates?
Unless you count my family or my husband, then no. I never lived out on my own with roommates.

2. How many names do you/your children have? (i.e. Prince Charming William Phillip Arthur Louis John Jacob Jingleheimer-Schmidt)
I have 3, like most people. If you count the Jr., my son has 4 since he is named after my husband.

3. Did you watch the Royal Wedding?
No, I was unable to watch any of the Royal Wedding. Although I did see her dress and thought she looked regal and elegant!

4. What is the messiest room in your house?
Ummm. . . all of them? LOL! Right now the messiest is probably a tie between our master bedroom and the extra room because we still have all our Christmas decorations in boxes all over that room.
5. What is your ideal mothers day?
My ideal Mother's Day would be to start off with church, then head to my grandmother's for lunch with my family, especially my son. We would relax the rest of the day, playing outside, cards (Spite and Malice!) and just enjoy the day together! I love spending time with my family so that would be the best day!
