"I have made this cake for more than 50 years. It was my mother-in-law's recipe. One of my sons used this recipe in a 4-H demonstration when he was a teenager and won a blue ribbon. It is a favorite dessert at our house. I make it at Christmas in a tube pan and give as gifts. It takes a little longer to bake in a tube pan.

Lauren Hadavand and her husband, Ali, are expecting their first child on Nov. 28. The Martinsburg, W.Va., couple attended Lauren's 20-week ultrasound together last month at Capital Women's Care in Hagerstown. An ultrasound is generally done halfway through pregancy to check for abnormalities or genetic defects. During the procedure, the ultrasound technician can usually determine the baby's gender. But rather than have the technician tell the gender of their baby, the Hadavands opted to find out in a nontraditional way - with a cake provided to them after the procedure.

It is arguably a glamorous week for 1,024-pound Hereford beef steer Schmitty. His typical surroundings are “all mucky,” said Caleb McDougal, 13, of Smithsburg, who raised the placid light-brown brute. This week, at the Washington County Ag Expo and Fair though, Schmitty is receiving movie-star treatment with daily baths, brushing and blow-drying. “I'm getting him ready to show him in the ring,” Caleb said. “People will bid on my animal and pay by the pound.” While Schmitty's fate following purchase Thursday night might be viewed as unglamorous or even morbid, he likely will be savored by a buyer.

West Virginia, a state born of a nation torn, joined the Union in the midst of the Civil War 150 years ago - and celebrating that event Thursday was a piece of cake for two Eastern Panhandle cities. Western Virginia broke away from Virginia and the Confederacy on June 20, 1863. On Thursday morning, members of the William Henshaw Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution in Martinsburg cut a huge chocolate and white sheet cake into 100 pieces, and set it on a table on the city's public square.

I wanted to give readers a recipe that would be nice finish to any meal. This lemonade cake was something I ran across more than 10 years ago, which I've adapted. You can add an additional egg white and cut back on eggs to two, it also really makes a nice color variation to add in pink lemonade concentrate. Make sure to use clear vanilla extract and the color of the lemonade can been seen. Scott C. Anderson is associate food service director and chef with Shepherd University dining services in Shepherdstown, W.Va., and Chef Ambassador to the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board.

A Hancock family continued a Christmas tradition this year by placing a display featuring a three-tiered birthday cake that says "Happy Birthday Jesus" in lights. The display can be seen in the yard of Shirley and Lewis Mills, on a hill across from the Park-N-Dine Restaurant. Shirley Mills and her brother, Melvin Iden, repainted and repaired the birthday cake, which has drawn compliments over the years from people who stopped to look at the display. The Millses say they hope people will look at the cake and remember the true meaning of what Christmas stands for, which is the birth of Jesus.

Just like many peoples' family Thanksgiving gatherings, there was good food, laughter and some good-natured ribbing during the Williamsport Moose Lodge's fourth annual community Thanksgiving meal on Sunday. Graham Blair, 16, ate a piece of chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting, known as “wacky cake” by his family. Asked by a family member if it was as good as the wacky cake made by his mom, Terri Blair, he said, “Yes, it is.” “How rude,” responded his mother, good-naturedly, from across the table.

My latest creation came about when playing with some espresso-ground pumpkin spice coffee.  I love the flavor and was interested in trying to coax out more flavors at breakfast, hence the Pumpkin Coffee Cake. I also wanted it to have a bite to it so that it can perk up anyone sampling the moist coffee cake.  If you desire you can easily leave out the cayenne, and add in another teaspoon of cinnamon, or nutmeg. However, be careful, nutmeg can overpower the batter if used liberally.
