I had a lot of fun planning my Mom's birthday treats. She's so funny because she wants a Cake Mama cake, but she doesn't want me to work so hard, but she really wants a fun treat, but she doesn't want me to stress about it, but it would be nice to have cake, but I shouldn't spend too much time on it... I could go on for days like this! She's a wonderful mom and deserves a nice treat from me. Quite frankly, it's the least I could do for her for all she does for me.
So, a few days before her birthday, I gave her a package of cake pops for her to share with her friends. She brought some up to share with her mom and friends and a few days later she had coffee with "the girls" and had a great time sharing.
Then, to celebrate her birthday, I made her favorite cake. She absolutely LOVES poppy seed cake with 7-minute frosting. I added some lemon syrup to the cake and lemon curd filling to make this a lemony-moist treat. Because she wanted it simply decorated, I added the lemon candies for some color.
Happy Birthday, Mom! Thanks for all you do for us!
