The ingredients for this recipe are very simple. Everyone has all of them at any given time.
We may sometimes relegate them to a corner cupboard or the cupboard under the stairs.
So before you begin take some time to locate them and lay them all put in order.
Milk of human kindness 2 cups
Tears of joy one teaspoon
Essence of humility half teaspoon (even a few drops will do)
Tolerance 2 cups
Contentment one cup
Generosity of spirit 2 level tablespoons
Humour 3 heaped tablespoons
Use a large mixing bowl with plenty of room for manoeuvre.
Very gently mix the liquid ingredients together with a wooden spoon.
Sift the dry ingredients carefully.
Now fold the dry ingredients into the liquid mixture.
Be very careful that you do not overdo the mixing. Use a silicone spatula–silicone is temperature resistant and flexible hence ideal for temperamental cooks.
Put the mixture in a cake tin of your choice.
Then place in an oven preheated with personal warmth and friendship
Cover the finished cake with a frosting of family traditions.
Decorate by sprinkling with personal anecdotes.
Your Cake of Happiness is ready to share with family and friends.
