one sunny day in june

Eleven years ago I had the privilege of standing up next to my sister as she married her best friend.  The least I could do to help celebrate the anniversary was make a cake.  The recipe was from Cooking Light magazine, originally called Luscious Lemonade Cake.  I mostly followed it and added extra lemon juice to perk up the frosting.  It turned out somewhere in-between a wedding cake and a lemon pound cake.  My nephew did the decorating (came up with his own words!), while my niece helped me pick strawberries to plop on top.  One of the many things I have learned from them over the years is to be generous together.  It was a joy to share in that day, and today it is a joy to be part of their family that has grown from two to four.  I hope to one day return the favor.
