I secretely discovered this recipe which Amanda and Merrill kept locked in their hearts. But I thought maybe they won't mind me sharing it with you. It's trully a very special cake with a magic mix from Amanda and Merril! —Maria Teresa Jorge

What You'll Need
  • 4 cups love
  • 3 cups passion
  • 2 dedication
  • 3 cups hard work
  • 1 cup belief
  • 2 cups support from family
  • 1 bunch support from friends
  • tons of patience with members
  • 10 cups stamina
  • several handfuls laughter
  1. In a large bowl mix love and passion. Then add dedication, hard work and belief and incorporate well.
  2. Put the mixer on extra high and when the kitchen is completely covered with the mix, throw in the support from family and friends and beat like crazy.
  3. Now pour the mixture in a huge bowl, maybe you'll want to consider your bathtub at this point. Turn on that groovy dancing music and pour in all your patience with members, several handfuls of laughter and finally throw the stamina in and hit it like you mean it!
  4. Pour mixture in a mould, hold it in your arms with tenderness for almost 3 years and it's ready for recognition beyond belief.
  5. Congratulations Amanda and Merril - I'm far away but very proud of you two!

Thank you Maria Teresa for being so smart and thoughtful; This is another very important award for Amanda and Merril and your Winner Recipe! Thanks from all of us!
Maria T. May 11, 2012
Kukla, A&M and all the food52 team no doubt deserve this award. But also so important, in my modest opinion, is the award and recognition each one of us in the community give food52 every day, by coming here, participating and respecting this site as a credible and knowledgeable publication. That's the reason I made this cake - little slice from all of us to all of you with a big hug!
