the farmwives kitchen

There must be something in the air about sweets right now.

For us, the excuse was Lulah’s birthday (more on that shortly), and this book – Bake It Like You Mean It, by Gesine Bullock-Prado.  Lulah saw this cake way back in the Spring, and decided then and there that this was HER birthday cake.

It’s a delicious cake, and most of all, it’s Lulah’s birthday cake. cake interior

We love a new challenge around here.  Especially in the spirit of celebration.frosting nose
