Mama Love!

Here in the States, it's not just Tax Day, it's also my Mom's birthday! Sending out big love to Huxley's "Gigi."

I'm baking her this cake, which I plan to layer with orange curd and strawberry jam and cover over in lemon buttercream. Tomorrow my brother, sister-in-law and nephew are driving up from Charlotte to mom's place in Burnsville for a big family meal. We'll be feasting on Hubs' incredible fried chicken, mashed potatoes and, you guessed it, peas!

Happy day, Mom! See you tomorrow!

Happy Birthday to your mom! I am sure she is going to love that beautiful cake on her big day. I am a new reader to your blog, which I found through the WWC Magazine and so glad I found another NCarolinian! By the way, I tried your Honey Pie this weekend and it was a complete success. Thank you for a beautiful recipe.
