As Tasha Tudor's birthday of August 28th approaches, we are talking and dreaming about how we will celebrate this year.  In 2008, Clarice Fox-Hughes anointed August 28th as Tasha Tudor Day saying “Really I would love if the whole world would stop and remember her. This could simply be sitting in your garden with a cup of tea, reading her books, doing a sketch or just stopping and smelling the roses. Let us all on Tasha Tudor's birthday remember her and all she has inspired us to live.”

While the children are suggesting we have tea on Granny's porch and Amy dreams of a floating cake at dusk, your plans needn't be fussy.  Since no matter what we decide, a delicious cake will in some way be included, you might like Tasha's receipt (aka recipe) for Becky’s Birthday Cake with Boiled Frosting. What are you considering? We'd love to hear about your plans.  Join us in using hashtag #TashaTudorDay2022 on Facebook or Instagram to share pictures of your preparations and celebrations.
