My Grandma turned 94 last week. Ninety-four!!! She's still just as independent as ever and I look forward to making her cakes every year. This year she wanted an angel food cake with old fashioned frosting.
The frosting I chose was a 7-minute frosting that is meringue-based and totally yummy and marshmallow-y. It's my Grandma's favorite. The angel food cake is made from scratch and there's a hint of lemon in there. I also macerated some strawberries so that she could have those on the side; a little strawberry shortcake, if you will.
I topped the cake with some pink sugar and gum paste flowers and letters.
Here's my Gramma Dorothy.
Happy Birthday, Gram-gram! I hope you had a spectacular day!
