BWD #2, Part 2: A Birthday Cake for Deacon

As of this morning at approximately 8:51 or so...I'm an AUNT!!!  My brother and sister in law had their little boy, Deacon, and he was 19" and weighed 8 lbs, 4 oz.  Considering our anniversary was two days ago, and now Deacon's here---April is shaping up to be quite a memorable month, indeed!  Reason for celebration with a carrot cake!

As promised, I've included a few more deconstructed...and fully assembled pics!  I chose to make it with homemade lemon curd and homemade whipped cream, rather than the sugary sweet cream cheese frosting.  Husband will be home shortly to give his review!

The elements...whipped cream, lemon curd, and three layers of carrot cake.

Much better.


  1. Congratulations on becoming an aunt!
    So, how did the husband like his cake with the lemon curd?

  2. It received RAVE reviews from everyone who tried it...I was even asked for the lemon curd recipe. I have some leftover, and am thinking I need to go back and bake some scones to go with the lemon curd! :)
