PIONEER VILLAGE - A trip to Michigan with friends took Sharon Cheser down the long road to Kentucky State Fair success.
Cheser and her husband, Cliff, were visiting the Grand Hotel at Mackinac Island with friends on a Toby Tours trip.
Dinner at the Grand Hotel included a dessert bar with one of the best chocolate cakes they ever tasted.
"My friends said try to make it," Cheser recalled. "I tried until my husband liked it, and then a friend helped perfect it. I'd keep track of all the changes."
