The morning started with my 5 year-old making me breakfast (peanut butter toast) and my 3 year-old asking where Mommy’s birthday cake was, because, after all, he wanted to make sure I shared it!
I’ve mentioned a few times how my husband is the real baker in the family… His brownies are the best I’ve ever tasted, and each year for my birthday he makes this awesome four layer Black Forest cake with cherries and delicious chocolate goodness in each bite.
This year, though, my daughter informed him that Mommy wanted a lemon cake. (I think I might have mentioned to her a few weeks ago that my mom always made a lemon cake for my birthday when I was younger.)
After a run to the grocery store, he was back and baking…
The smell of lemon as he used the zester (I didn’t even know we had one!) kept me in the kitchen; it was like a touch of spring in the middle of winter.
With cakes to bake, filling to prepare, and homemade icing (seriously, he makes me feel inadequate when it comes to baking), he was in the kitchen most of the morning and into the afternoon.
There was a beautiful, 4 layer lemon cake, complete with cherries for decoration.
This week marks not only my birthday, but the anniversary of There’s Just One Mommy, too! I want to thank each and every one of you for being there during the journey these past two years. I treasure the friendships I’ve made through blogging, and I look forward to continuing the journey with you all.

Oooooo….a lemon cake DOES sound like a taste of “summer”….my mouth is watering from reading about it! That cake looks amazing….even to a chocoholic like me ; )
Happy Birthday, One Mommy!!

Have to say I’m a chocolate girl usually, but I do have a fondness for lemon cake…and this one was extra delish!

AW!!! Happy birthday and HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!! You share my son’s b- day too! I think i started around this time too, two years ago. I should probably go back and check. Would be nice to know that, eh? Your husband has won the BEST HUSBAND award from my camp!!!!! What a dear and a devoted love he is… Enjoy your fabulous cake!!! 🙂
Yes, he really did go all out on the cake this year… I should make sure he gets another piece before it’s all gone! 🙂
It is funny how we lose track of time…I almost forgot I’d been blogging that long until my husband mentioned it.
