Cake Walk

There are few things more charming than a simple, beautiful cake. Maybe pie. But that’s a story for another blog post. One of my little domestic goals is to become a better baker this year and I’ve decided to start by upping my cake game. I usually stick with my go-to recipe: the Winning Hearts and Minds cake. But I’m running out of friends to make it for, which means I need to add some new heavy hitters to my cake arsenal. We did some digging and found some lovely cakes worthy of try. Who wants to come over and taste test??
