Classic Quilters Holds "After The Holidays" Dinner

With the hustle and bustle of the holidays over, Classic Quilters held their annual dinner meeting on Tuesday, January 21st at Marco's restaurant in Lewiston.
It was so nice to spend time visiting and catching up with old friends. Working evenings, it's been difficult to attend meetings, so it was especially nice for me. Chatting about our latest quilting projects, weather (we always have "weather" on our dinner meeting and luckily it held off until after we got home), family (and dogs!).
I brought a little door prize--a quilting license plate cover--and the raffle winner was Carole Pettinelli.
Scraps and Patches of Poland have asked Classic Quilters to join them again to co-host an Area 3 meeting this fall and Classic Quilters agreed. At this time, all is know is that it will be held in October. Stand by for more information!

Hokey Pokey Cake

(Modified from a Taste of Home recipe)

Makes 15 servings

1 pkg. (18 ¼ oz.) chocolate or any flavor of cake mix

1 jar (17 oz.) caramel or any flavor ice cream topping (find this in the ice cream section)

1 carton (12 oz.) Cool Whip, any flavor, thawed (in refrigerator)

3 Heath candy bars (1.4 oz. each) or your favorite type of candy bars, chopped

Prepare and bake care according to package directions, using a greased 13” x 9” baking pan. Cool on a wire rack.

Using the end of a wooden spoon, poke holes in the cake, every 1” or so. Pour ¾ cups of ice cream topping over the holes. It works best to slightly warm the ice cream topping in the microwave (top removed) for about 15 seconds or until easy to pour over the cake. Spoon any remaining ice cream topping over the cake.

Top with thawed Cool Whip topping. Sprinkle with candy topping. Refrigerate for at least two hours before serving.

You can have fun with this cake by changing up the flavor of cake mixes, flavored Cool Whip and ice cream toppings. You can also use an array of candy toppings—use your imagination!
