Olympics cake

Yes today is my Birthday and what better way to spend it than making cake. This Olympic rings cake was a last minute rush order, like two days ago rush order. I'm really happy with how it turned out though.

I did learn one important thing from all of this. When you make black frosting it helps to add a little cocoa to get that dark black color. An invaluable lesson.

Hope you have a great party Aiden and Happy Birthday to both of us.

Lemon Lush Parfaits

Nothing says summer like lemons.  The smell, the taste and the color of lemons makes me feel happy and summery.  That is why Lemon Lush is one of my favorite summertime desserts.  That is also why I had to make it into a parfait because everything is better served in a tiny little glass container.
