The One With the Cake Day

I never pass up an opportunity to make some cakes. So, we had a cake extravaganza just for the heck of it! Well, and for Mallory to show us all her cool Scentsy stuff. I made three cakes: A Lemon-Blueberry, A Chocolate Mousse, and a Pink Almond Party Cake.
I'll be sharing the recipes to the Pink Almond and Chocolate Mousse Cakes later. The Lemon-Blueberry Cake was spotted on one of my newest daily reads, Sweetapolita.

If you're interested in the recipe, it can be found here. I made the cake without the white cake layer (seriously, how does Rosie have so much time?). I used the recipe linked from Martha Stewart for the lemon curd filling and used cream cheese frosting with yellow food coloring and lemon extract (about 1 1/2 tablespoons) for the icing. It was very good. And also very rich.

And Allison found these adorable little cake boxes at Michael's and added sweet embellishments so we could send cake home with guests.
It was a pretty sweet day (pun totally intended). I think I am going to make cake or dessert-themed parties a regular occurrence now.
