I think it’s a given that the older generation has a different definition of fashionable clothes.
I had a hard time keeping the laughter in whenever I remember that one time when my aunts had a bit of a culture shock when they finally realized that there were different kinds of fashion now and that they mostly wouldn’t definitely get them because that’s just how fashion evolved—you just go with it.
It started when they saw us, girls, discussing something from a fashion magazine on Joana’s hands. Aunt Carmen, who’s probably the most conservative, came over to see what we’ve been arguing about. It was a simple thing.
We were arguing whether red shoes would look good with blue pants and vice versa. I told Joana that it would as long as you know how to carry your clothes. Color is something that you play with now.
She actually agreed except that she said blue pants would look better with yellow flats. My Aunt Carmen, who was listening, said that we were ridiculous because those colors would clash together. And then we explained things to her.
Aunt Beth quietly placed a loaf of butter cake in front of us along with saucers and said, “Carmen. You would understand this better. Eat.” Well, it wasn’t just Aunt Carmen who “understood” the butter cake. It was gone in a few minutes!
This can be served during afternoon tea or even the after-dinner coffee. People will surely appreciate the light buttery and sweet taste of this cake. It’s perfect to serve after a heavy and rich lunch or dinner. You can eat this with jams or jelly; or even with cream cheese. You can also make your own frosting or glaze for this if you have a family recipe for a delicious frosting or glaze. It’s up to you how you will make this more wonderful than it already is!
I don’t remember Mom making this a lot, but I do remember eating it a lot at grandmas. Grandma’s love for classic recipes was quite a blessing because we got to taste those recipes that were rarely cooked by our parents.
