the first day of spring

Every year, for as long as I can remember, my mom has made my favorite cake for my birthday.

cream

It's not really a cake per se.

wafers

It's made with cookies and whipped cream.

in process

It has to sit in the refrigerator for at least four hours. Over night is even better.

If you can keep your hands off it that long.

This year I've returned the favor and made one for her.

Happy Birthday Mom, we love you.

I'm gonna have to quote you on something you said about something I said.
"You bake for others?"
Everybody should have a birthday cake, and that one looks like something I could eat all by myself! Yummy!!!

Love this cake...so little effort. So much payoff. You can add raspberries for a little something extra. But it's yummy just as is.

This cake is the way I learned as a child that homemade whipped cream is da bomb. Plus in Arizona, a no-bake cake is a winner in the summer.

Love it any time! Happy Birthday to your mum.
