Happy Birthday Rob…

…the best man ever.  Rob turns 36 today and since we are away from home we decided simple was the way to go.  So the girls and I got him a 90 minute massage and then backed him a cake.  Ok I baked and they watched a movie :)


Now since I’m away from home I had to scour my favourite bakers websites for a good white cake that I could do easily in a kitchen that wasn’t mine.  I went to Amanda’s website at I Am Baker for her white cake. It was so easy to use and baked really well.  I added lemon juice to the batter and soaked it in lemon simple syrup and covered in a lemon glaze.  Can you say lemon?????


It’s Rob’s fave!


We’ve been eating so much since we got here, so I thought a simple lemon cake would do the trick and that way he still gets a birthday cake.

Happy Birthday Rob!  Love you!


Thanks for looking!
