Down here, wouldn't that be Co-Coler?

I saw this item on a few menus serving "low country" cuisine. I have to admit I've never had it. It sounds really good!

p.s. Is $24 cheap or expensive?

Deanna said...

Carrie - I know you are joking... $24.00 is crazy outrageous. I could make a ton of cakes for that amount of money.

Doghouse - Cocoler is right! Your Mississippi is showing!

Tammy - Hope it is part as good as your Moms!
