She begged & pleaded & I couldn’t resist. My baby girl turned ten this weekend & she wanted mama to bake her a Strawberries ‘n Cream Birthday Cake.
A layer cake to be precise. With one layer of vanilla cake & the other with a strawberry one. She then went into details about a cream cheese ~ whipped cream frosting. Oh…and not to forget a layer of strawberry jam between the layers.
Here’s how things worked out….
You will be pleased to know that this cake is not only gluten free, but also free of refined sugars.
Everything is sweetened with maple syrup.
Both the cake layers and the Cream Cheese Whipped Cream Frosting.
I’ll admit I even had a slice for breakfast the other day & felt great afterwards. No big sugar rush or anything.
My little gal had a great 10th b’day.
Her first time celebrating the big day here in Telluride. She has wonderful pals that sure know how to show a little gal a great time!
If you are not baking for any birthday parties any time soon, don’t fret. You can still go right on ahead & bake yourself a cake.
Every day is worth a celebration!
