Yesterday was my friend Brenda's birthday. I won't tell you how old she is, but it comes somewhere between 45 and 47.
It's become somewhat of a tradition now for me to make her a birthday cake and have her come over for a little party, and yesterday was no exception. You can see past years' celebrations HERE and HERE.
I gave you a teaser of the day yesterday, so today is the whole story! I asked her the day before what her favorite kind of cake was and she said lemon, so lemon it was. But I was in over achiever mode, so I made both lemon cupcakes and lemon cheesecake!
The really yummy bit of the cheesecake was the base - instead of graham crackers I used Ginger Snaps. Ginger + lemon = Yumminess!! I'll post the recipe next week and do a Tasty Tuesday post for you. It's actually incredibly easy!
I made the birthday girl a little mini quilt, just an 8 pointed star, and used my kind of fabrics but her kind of colors.
So thank you Brenda for having a birthday and giving me the excuse to make yummy food and eat outside!
