I love my mom’s Milky Way Candy Bar Cake. She has been making it since I can remember, usually for special occasions. Sometimes it is for Christmas Eve dinner, sometimes it is a work function, sometimes for a dinner party with her friends. When I moved out, I would occasionally miss whatever event was being celebrated with Milky Way Candy Bar Cake, so I started making it once a year. I usually pick some occasion when I am going to be around other people. Last night was the 2011 Milky Way Candy Bar Cake event. I had some gals over for euchre and I wanted to make a special evening. We haven’t gotten together in a while, and I wanted to make the evening fun–especially where the food was concerned.
