Apricot Pecan Cake


'Tis officially the season for cake. And though we hostesses value the high-quality taste of a homemade recipe, we frankly don't have the time amongst party prep and three-course menu planning. Here's where Collin Street Bakery comes enters the picture.

The family-owned bakery, located in the heart of Texas, specializes in secretive family recipes and, simultaneously, the packaging and shipping of precious cakes to homes nationwide. Last year, I relished the fine Texas fudge pecan pie right before Christmas' arrival. This year, I opted for the apricot pecan cake with Texas-native pecans, clover honey, and sun-dried apricots. It's absolutely delicious with a cup of hot tea or coffee following a homemade meal -- perhaps even Thanksgiving.

It wouldn't be the holidays without one of these tins gracing your or a loved one's doorstep. As a treat to you and me, Collin Street Bakery is offering free standard shipping on online orders of $50 or more. The offer is valid this week only, through November 14. During checkout, use keycode 51YUM7.
