This week’s “Tasty Tuesday” features a delicious birthday cake recipe – – that is TO DIE FOR! Only downside with this recipe… (and I’m not so sure it’s all that bad)… you won’t want to share it with the kids!

If you like your birthday cake (or any cake for that matter) to be incredibly moist and flavorful… then this is the recipe for you! I recommend picking a white wine that you enjoy… you don’t have use the one in the recipe. And, as you already know, if you need a nice white wine… take a peek at my Store. I can get your favorite wine & you can make an amazing cake & make an impact too.
