I’m a little late on posting for Mother’s Day, but thought I would share the dessert I baked. I haven’t posted in quite some time now. I’ve been in such a rush getting things done on the house and FINALLY have it on the market. Hopefully it won’t take long to sell!
Now back to the dessert. I found this recipe for Strawberry Lemonade Layered Cake on Easy Baked’s blog (great blog by the way must check it out ūüôā ) and thought I would give it a whirl.¬† It was a BIG hit with everyone and didn’t last long.¬† It was a very refreshing dessert.¬† As always I changed it up a bit. Instead of¬†doing a¬†layered cake, I turned it into a trifle.¬† Check out Easy Baked’s recipe if you’d like the layered cake version.¬† The only difference is the assembly. Enjoy!
