...for real, lol. It will be the anniversary of my birth. 

Last year, when she was 11, my daughter found a recipe online and made me from scratch the most scrumptious cake:

It was a mint chocolate cake, with chocolate swirls in the batter...and a white chocolate ganache frosting! She picked the recipe, & went & harvested some of the first mint leaves from our kitchen garden.

Since she has grown up seeing me bake from scratch, she had no problems.

So this year I emailed her a recipe I found for Devil's food chocolate, and one for a scrumptious sounding seven minute vanilla frosting. 

But I'll be baking, too. Her Tia has he same birthday! But I tease her because while it's the same day, she is three years older.

She & her sister & kinda whole extended family loooove the lemon butter cake I am kinda known for. It's a bit of a b*tch to make, but sooo worth it:

So..I AM a cake baker. 

And so is my daughter. 


P.S. Please DO SHARE your most awesome delectable recipes!

I'm a cupcake baker, so I'm out. lol Although if I do make a cake I just use a cupcake recipe. Today I made Earl Grey cupcakes with Lavender frosting. They were super yummy.
