Today is my mother’s birthday and we had her over for a birthday celebration. On the menu: butternut squash risotto, green beans almondine, and roast pork. For the birthday cake: Peachy Cake Roll. A friend told me about this cake last week and I knew right away I wanted to make it. I love jellyroll cakes, and I also like to make springtime cakes for mom’s birthday.
The filling is simply peaches, cream cheese, and confectioners’ sugar. Even though this is the first time I’ve made this recipe, I did make some changes. Instead of vanilla I used almond extract. And, I served ginger whipped cream with it (minced crystallized ginger and a dash of powdered ginger mixed into my freshly whipped cream.) It was pretty fantastic if I say so myself!
And I felt extra crafty by making this flag to stick into her bouquet-cut out paper, sewed together, trimmed the edges, stamped it, put a stick in it, and put it in the flowers!
