I grew up with a mom who was THE BEST at making cakes. I had no idea those skills would be so awesome to have one day as a mom. My mom also always threw us a fun party for our birthday, made us feel loved and celebrated and so I carry on the tradition in our household. Birthdays and holidays are really important to me.
Over the years I’ve taken it down a notch in the party department because life is full and Pinterest parties are not what it’s all about. However, I’ll always do my best to have a fabulous and delicious cake to feed the crowd. I’m a total cake snob (thanks to my mom always making the best cakes) and there is a BIG secret to getting a moist cake. And please know, I hate that word and it should never be used for anything besides describing a cake. Can I get an Amen to that?! Whew, okay, I just had to say that before I could move on.
If you want to know what the secret is to making the perfect cake with some tips on how to decorate it as well then head on over to the Portland Moms Blog to read my post find out how.
And just for fun, here are some of the cakes that I’ve done in the past.
