This is Kate's birthday cake. I make a special cake for my kids for their birthday - not a traditional cake. I'm just waiting to hear those words, "But Mom, I want a cake like everyone else has!" But, she does love this cake. It's very easy to make, consisting of angel food cake, vanilla yogurt, homemade whipped cream and fresh berries (I use strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries). What is this pan called... anyway, the sides slide off and you have a pretty presentation. Like a cheesecake. This year I had the idea to use some strawberries as holders for the candles, and it was precious!
It was rainy all night, but we got outside for a few minutes. The kids ended up popping the balloons and that was a hit. Scott's parents came up, and all her friends from Sunday School came - we had a great time!
