Spring Cake

filed under: Cakes on May 8, 2013

**This would also be a perfect Mothers Day Cake!**

We have been desperate for Spring here in the midwest.  With May snowstorms and chilly temps, getting a glimpse of the warm May sun seems an impossible dream.

So why not fake it?

Lime and Orangesicle Springtime Cake!


I am going to substitute bright, cherry and delicious cakes for the lack of warm weather and sunshine!

And in that line of thinking I have decided that I no longer need a special occasion to make cake.

I simply cake it because I want to be happy and bring others happiness!

Want to know other ways I celebrate the “everyday”?

Dont let myself get caught up in perfection.  I will never be perfect, so why do I keep striving for it?

See the top of that cake where the swirls arent all perfectly aligned in the middle? Oh well!  Are the dishes mostly clean?  Do the kids have clean clothes to wear tomorrow?  Did we have dinner together and there was at least one veggie? (Even if my daughter only pretended to eat hers!)  Did we spill popcorn because we were laughing so hard while watching a movie as a family?

Sounds perfect to me.

Spring Cake! Lime and Orangesicle layers of beauty!


Embrace citrus.  Nothing makes me feel more like Springtime then when I enjoy my first lemonade.

I have to tell you… the combination of these two flavors was really amazing!  On their own they are fabulous as well… its really a win-win! 🙂

    I celebrate by either creating something in the kitchen or splurging on something ready made (prefer making it myself). My favorite go to is homemade cherry almond vanilla frozen custard.

    Always with some type of confections…usually a baked good. Nothing brings a smile to people’s faces than a homemade baked good.
