Last week we got together for my mom’s birthday. I always look forward to celebrating her special day. My brother and his wife hosted dinner. I brought the cake. This year’s cake inspiration struck when I was reading one of my all-time favorite blogs, Posie Gets Cozy. The subtle simplicity, yet playful sparkle totally won me over. I knew I wanted to make this cake and my mom’s birthday would be the perfect occasion. I really enjoy making a cake from scratch. It’s so much more rewarding and the flavor and texture are incomparable. This cake involved whipping eggs whites into stiff peaks. That always makes me a little nervous until I’m actually folding them into the batter. Then it’s just pure joy. You can find the cake and frosting recipe here. I went with all buttercream because I needed to prepare the cake in advance. This is definitely a must try. Happy baking.

 

And Happy Birthday, Mom. I love you!

    I love moms. Happy birthday to yours! This cake is gorg, the color is so happy. John made me a homemade cake last year for the first time ever and I’m not sure I can ever accept anything less now.
