Lemon Cake

We celebrated my nephew’s birthday this weekend.  Well, the people living over there did.  I wasn’t invited for the cake, ice cream and presents.  I’m a bit hurt because I literally live 10 minutes away… but that’s not what this blog post is about.  It’s about cake.

The company is owned by Cheryl Woo, who is dating one of my husband’s coworkers.  That’s how we found her.  She was super nice, and very accommodating.  Plus… she makes cupcakes!  We’re definitely going to order some from her for our first anniversary.  But here’s the question: lemon cake or chocolate cake?  Hmmm…
