Today is Connie’s birthday and last year was the first birthday lunch we had to miss. This year I baked her a birthday cake – her choice was lemon. No lemon cake recipe in my collection so I headed to the internet. This cake was highly rated as being moist with a lemony cream cheese frosting.
As I headed out of the yard with Hazel, Telly rounded the corner wanting to join us. I opened the sliding side door and prayed she’d jump over the cake. But…..she didn’t. One paw landed in the cake – wouldn’t you know! All that angst and effort only to end up with a punched in cake!
Good grief! I know Connie would give me an A for effort but I sure wish I had used a dependable Duncan Hines lemon cake mix. I will not reprint the recipe I used because it did not live up to the claims of being a moist cake. I am throwing my recipe card away so I don’t mistakenly use it again.
Here are a couple pictures of Siri – such beautiful markings!
And that’s Connie’s birthday post – now it’s back to ripping for me. I told Connie I might be a better writer than sewer – haha! Thanks for all your sympathy comments!
