Before I turned thirty I drew a seven-layer birthday cake, something I knew was too grand to really exist:


And then, hope against hope, my dear friend Misty began making me cakes. Different, single layers would sporadically appear. First chocolate, then spice.

Last week something amazing happened. I was back home visiting family and spent a day with Misty. And she surprised me with mini lime, cherry, carrot, and plain cakes with lemony icing. They were completely delicious and I ate almst everything. Let me tell you, nobody bakes like Misty Martinez. Watch for her food blog, lemonsprig, coming soon.
