Anatomy of a Dinner Party: a day in the life of a hospitalityaholic

Cake Again?

Written by Patti on January 24th, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

You would think that after my fiasco of trying to bake two failed cakes for Holly’s birthday that I might just give up. Oh no. I have not learned my lesson yet. Plus, I am hosting a tiny dinner party for my beloved friend Kerry (check out his gorgeous new website here) on Friday night for his belated birthday.

I needed something sassy, sweet and chic, just like Kerry. Lemon layer cake seems to fit the bill. America’s Test Kitchen made it and if they can do it, I should be able to as well, yes? Isn’t it pretty?

Stay tuned. And please cross your fingers for me and say a little prayer to the kitchen goddesses that I can get this one right.

xoxo, Patti
