I finished baking the fourth cake from my library book, "Birthday Cakes: Recipes and Memories from Celebrated Bakers" by Kathryn Kleinman.
Cake #1 - Jelly Roll (mine was un-photograph-able)
Cake #2 - Gingerbread Cake with Chocolate Icing
Cake #3 - Comforts Coconut Cake with Cream Cheese and Coconut Frosting
Cake #4 - Meyer Lemon Pound Cake
Cake #5 is being baked as we speak (The Elvis Cake, details to come)
I'm obviously on a roll here, though I think it will stop once classes start picking up. I'm having fun being the happy little home-maker, and my house-mates are really excited about it too (and they are inspired to make their own yummy creations).
