March is full of birthdays around here. We have 5 March birthdays in my family, including Silas and myself. I also have at least 8 friends with birthdays this month.
So basically, cake. That is what that means.
Today I made lemon pound cake with blueberry filling and lemon cream cheese frosting [pictured above] for my mom’s birthday. My cakes may be ugly, but they taste mighty fine.
Blueberry compote. Yes.
I actually made two cakes, because we didn’t think there would be enough for everyone. But when you’re eating a two-layer pound cake with filling and cream cheese frosting…you get full pretty quickly. So we had an entire cake left over.
I hadn’t baked in a while, so it was fun to cake it up today. But those suckers took me all morning to make. I might be done for this month. Silas and I can stick some candles on a pizza or something.
What is your favorite birthday cake (or treat, if you’re not a cake person)? Honestly, I love a classic yellow cake with a good chocolate frosting. It’s the best.
