This is an exciting Friday Five Faves!
This weekend is both my birthday, and Noah’s birthday!
And you guys, there is a close runner-up to God and my family — cake.
I simply LOVE cake!
So today’s favorites are my favorites kinds of cake!
Seriously. I don’t even really care about the cuteness of the sprinkles. I just really like the flavor!
Plus, it’s cute.
My mom’s carrot cake is still my favorite carrot cake. I am always hopeful that somewhere will be able to match hers because then it would be readily available. But alas! No one has ever even come close.
I suppose it’s not a bad thing…
Need I say more? Look at that piece of cake!!
I’m not sure what it is about cherry cake, but I just love it. And I also really like cherry frosting. I could just lick cherry frosting off a spoon.
And that’s saying something, because for the most part, I don’t even really care about the frosting on cake.
The footnote on this kind of cake is that this does not apply to all lemon cake. Actually, I hate most lemon cake.
But my Grandma Kay makes this lemon cake that is to. die. for.
It doesn’t have frosting, just a glaze.
And she makes the cake from the lemons in her backyard.
My mouth is watering thinking about it…
I’m sorry, what was I saying? I got lost in lemon cake.
This picture is not of my grandma’s cake, so it won’t do it justice, but it’s the closest picture I could find to the deliciousness that is Grandma Kay’s lemon cake.
What about you? Do you have cake on your birthday? Do you have a favorite flavor?
I seriously want to hear about it. For reals.
