Peaches & Cream Spice Cake
One thing I hate is having insomnia.
It doesn’t happen to me very often.  Usually when my head hits the pillow at night I am DONE.
But sometimes, my mind is going 100 mph and I can’t shut it off.
Typically that happens when I am planning a party.
So I start baking in my mind.
I was planning my Mother-in-law’s birthday dinner, and the one thing I knew would be involved…
My dear friend, Betsy, has peach trees in her yard.
I have never in all my days had a peach from the grocery store that even compared to these!!
My Mother-in-law, Marie, LOVES peach pie.
If i ask her what kind of pie I should bring, she always says peach!
So that wasn’t hard to decide.
Peach pie…peach pie…AND…?????
When we all get together there are usually like 20+ of us.
I needed a cake, too.
Last year I canned ginger peaches.
(so mad I never blogged those…)
I love spiced peaches.
So, I wondered… hummmm? Spice Cake?
What else goes with peaches?
I knew that if I asked my son, Spencer he would reminisce about having peaches and cream at his great grandma’s house.
(My Mother-in-law’s Mother-in-law…)
So, cream it was!!
I made a Spice Cake and filled it with a peach filling, topped it off with whipped cream frosting.

So, now I will share with you what I did… It was really quite easy!!
