Over a Cup of Coffee: Kristin’s delicious cake

Diane Prather/For Craig Press

This week's cake recipe is delicious. I know, because I got to taste it. Pink Flamingo Cake was submitted by Kristin Grajeda, of Craig. She said she found the recipe on Facebook and made it hers by adding mini marshmallows to the frosting.

This is a great recipe for a birthday cake, for summer get-togethers, holidays … anytime. It's a pretty dessert, too.
