Gracious, what a whirlwind life is right now! Because planning the studio recital, choosing/arranging music for students over the summer, making packing lists, clothing shopping, "just-because" jaunts to Seattle, summer kick-off parties, normal teaching schedules, working, sewing a gown for my sis (another make-it monday! ;), scouring the internet for a good price on return tickets from Glasgow, nailing down final details for travel once across the pond, practicing and rehearsing to accompany a friend, Mother's Day, and trying to keep my room in a semi-sane state isn't enough for the month of May, we also have birthdays! There are moments when I feel a little overwhelmed.

The cake is a delicious, moist, butter cake, with grated lemon & orange zest...
Filling? Some killer lemon curd!
Frost with some delicious orange-flavored frosting...
|I promise, I finished frosting it the whole way, this was just when Emmy took the picture :)|
And garnish with orange, lemon, lime, and grapefruit slices:
Oh! and mint (which you may have to run to the store and purchase, if forgotten)
Check out the recipe here. It will certainly be found in our kitchen again!
|Hooray! The birthday girl! :)|
Have a Yummy Monday! :)
