I am dedicating this post to my First Granddaughter who turns 13 today, hence a new milestone for her becoming an official TEENAGER!
Today I will provide links to all the birthday parties for this granddaughter from her First Birthday to her 13th Birthday.
It is a special day for me as well since to honor her birth 13 years ago, and making me a grandmother for the first time, I decided to take my son’s advice and start my own blog: Suburbangrandma.com Thank you ALL for being such good sports following my blog and leaving such heartwarming comments…:-)
This Layered Honey Cake recipe was born today due to the leftover buttercream from making my Shortbread sandwich cookies.
It is a very simple recipe to make, as you begin with baking a fluffy honey cake on a 13″ x 18″ cookie sheet, then cutting it into 3 even sections and layering them with buttercream and your favorite jam, then drizzling it with a glaze.
Another cake challenge proposed to me by my daughter a while back, as a choice for her Birthday cake. I love trying out new recipes, so I was ready to tackle this one as well. You can never go wrong with chocolate.
This chocolate cake consists of 4 layers of cake, with chocolate ganache, creamy salted caramel, and toasted almonds. If this doesn’t make your mouth water, I don’t know what will!
If you love Tortes, but have been looking for a lighter filling, rather than the traditional butter cream one, this is a great recipe for you. The cake layers are very thin, and the filling is mostly apples, with a nice caramel glaze.
