Friends – cake #39 was actually 3 cakes. The first two were for a wedding reception. I was planning to try a slightly different version of Aunt Belva’s lemon pound cake. They would have been wonderful had I not slightly over baked them. It was completely stressful and horrifying! There are some things I can work around, but a cake that looks a little too dark is not one of them.
In the end – I took one lemon pound cake – (the way I’ve made it before with success – and it was a huge hit) and a caramel bourbon cake, which I had just practiced the week before.
When I decided to bake a cake a week, last January, I had no idea just how much I’d learn about myself or how much This process would stretch and grow me. There’s nothing more humbling than admitting my failures publicly. But there’s nothing more rewarding than learning to push through and keep going even when the going gets tough!
Thankfully it’s time to dive into fall flavors and holiday deliciousness. I’ve Got some yummy recipes in the works that I can’t wait to share! There’s so much to look forward to in my kitchen! Thanks for taking this journey with me!
