First off today is my lovely, amazing, beautiful mom’s birthday. 

I rarely buy cakes for any occasion especially birthdays, but time got the best of me this year. So I ordered a cake from one of my favorite bakeries, Hotcakes Bakes. They have amazing cupcakes (my favorite is the chocolate cupcake with raspberry mousse).

I ordered the lemon cake, with lemon curd and lemon buttercream frosting. The cake had the perfect balance of sweet and sour. I also love that you can order any size, so nothing goes to waste. It was the perfect cake for my Mom.

Happy Birthday Mom, I love you!
