I remember one year when we were in church and the youth were having a bake sale and I remember I made a cake i was 12 and tio luis said I like that cake it looks like it has nuts on it. Well it was my cake and I didn't tell him it wasn't nuts on it, it was the cake getting stuck to the frosting so I was dragging it so it looked like nuts on it. Lol. So sorry tio. He ended donating to my cake but i never heard him say any thing about it. So maybe he did think it was nuts. Love you tio. R.I.P. my condolences to all my cousins and my tia Gloria and all of our family.
