Happy Birthday Jackie

Fudgy chocolate cake with dark chocolate ganache frosting

Carrot walnut cake with cream cheese frosting

Jackie & Jim Lawson

I introduced you to my family a few posts back when my dad had his 83rd birthday. Today is my mom’s birthday and she is turning 84. I’m sure she doesn’t want me to tell her age, but I think she looks great—they both do!

Happy birthday, Jackie. I made you two cakes so you can decide which one to have—fudgy chocolate cake with dark chocolate ganache frosting or carrot walnut cake with cream cheese frosting or better yet, have a piece of both. I would definitely try both and when no one was looking I would sneak a little extra of that delicious cream cheese frosting.

Happy birthday to Jackie! They both do look fabulous. What a lovely photo. And your watercolor cakes are beautiful--they sound delicious, too. Save me a piece of either one of those babies! LOL ;)
