Baked Sunday Mornings: Aunt Sassy Cake

I made this week's Baked Sunday Mornings recipe, the Aunt Sassy Cake, back in January. I loved the sweet pistachio cake with decadent honey-vanilla buttercream. After I blogged about the cake, my cousin Cindy sent me an email telling me she thought the cake looked delicious. I knew the cake would be coming up on the Baked Sunday Mornings schedule, but I couldn't believe it when I saw the date -- today is Cindy's birthday. So I said I would happily make the cake again for her birthday, and I asked her to take a few pictures so that I could use them in this post.

You can read my previous post about this cake here. Happy Birthday, Cindy! I hope you have a wonderful day and enjoyed the cake!

I'll bet your cousin was thrilled! I know I would be - I'm the one who always makes cakes for everyone else.

We really enjoyed this one, too.

Have a great week!
