Doubly Delicious – New Years Eve Birthday Cake

New Year’s Eve was filled with food, fun and festivities. One special birthday that we always gather for on December 31st is Mom (her birthday is actually Dec 30th). In preparations for this she requested a yellow cake with chocolate ganache filling and that she likes blue. So, with homemade pride and hands ready and with the help of Ebony……

Ebony - my brand new Kitchen Aid Artisan mixer

I was able to whip up a “homemade” moist yellow cake (Courtesy of and some delicious whipped icing in two shades of blue.

Two-tone blue with double border and star tip flower dots

We then had a birthday cake for Mom/Betty/Grandma – it was all her choosing and she exclaimed as she saw it “Oooooohhh…how nice, thank you!”

The two- tone double border was a suggestion that was well suited and cake out wonderful. SO Happy Birthday, Mom and Happy New Year!
