The cake: layers of honey cake spread with sweet and tangy whipped sour cream and sprinkled with toasted walnuts. The cake stood tall and proud. Since the birthday celebration took place in the evening, the lighting did the cake very little justice. I used this light deficiency as an excuse to ask for an extra slice of cake to take home and photograph. I was a very happy girl the next morning!
Thank you to my mom for baking this special cake for me and for beautiful sunflowers (scroll down to see those sunny beauties!). I hope one day to get the recipe for this cake and bake it for my own daughter.
Curious about the beets and potatoes in the title of the post? Check back in a couple of days for details.
