The birthday cake was made by my sister in law, Terri and it was fabulous ! She got the recipe off Epicurious.com. I was able to find it and share it with you. When my birthday comes I am asking my darling husband to make it for me. I mentioned that today and his face went white...he told me he has never made a cake...lol....heck, this could be interesting.
Here is the recipe - she left out the nuts due to some with allergies...it was a light cake but very good.
