When I was younger, my mom always made the most delicious cakes for us. She made cakes whether it was a birthday, a holiday, or just because. We loved all of her cool designs and her fun recipes. It was always a treat to see what mom was going to come up with next!
Fast forward a few (or maybe a LOT more than a few 🙂 ) years later and I am just like mom. I love to create fun dessert recipes for the family. And just like mom, I don’t need a special occasion to make one.
