Okay, so I didn't make the pumpkin muffins this week. But I swear I have a good excuse. My little guy turned one on Saturday! And that meant lots of company and a house to clean and food to prepare. So I was a tad bit busy to say the least.
I made a miniature version of Dorie's perfect party cake for my son - minus the coconut on the outside. Judging from the dent he made in it, I'd say it was very good. And okay, I just might have taken a few bites since there was a good deal left of it after he smashed it all up.
I looooved the lemony flavor and it was so moist. It was so moist that it was a tad bit hard to frost it and not have the cake end up in the frosting. But I made plenty of frosting, so there was enough for a double coating.
I may just have to make this cake for every birthday from here on out. Yummy and surprisingly easy. For the recipe, get the book! It's Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan.
