My very spry and youthful mom turned 86 on Sunday, and here’s the cake I baked to celebrate. It was made with four layers of Duncan Hines Dark Chocolate Fudge, and the filling was a combo of chocolate bavarian cream and buttercream (the Magnolia Bakery recipe). You can check here for the particulars, as I made this very cake for my friend Holly on her milestone birthday. (Totally worth repeating!)
Hope you had a wonderful day, mom, and we all thank you for your kind and thoughtful heart. Wishing you many more!
The party was at my sister’s house and, as I approached the front door, I turned slightly to the left and was captivated by this dazzling display of wisteria in bloom. SO pretty.
