For my younger ones birthday I wanted to order a cake for her.

Hubby and she were adamant that I should make the cake not order it.

That is when I, #FireUpYourOven"  (d)  to bake 3 cakes.

One was a Date and Walnut Cake,  A Pound Cake that I covered with ganache the third one was this delicious cake that was appreciated a lot.

In fact one of my friend's daughter asked me for a full cake for her.
