My sister is visiting me this week. You know, the one who coerced me into making a birthday cake this year. Yep. That one.
This is a very special, nostalgic cake for my family. It was my great-grandmother, Baba’s favorite go-to cake recipe. The Lady Baltimore Cake. It’s dainty, delicate, feminine and beautiful to look at.
If there is a befitting time for a cake it would be today. Not only are we gathering the last of the summer harvest anticipating the turning of seasons but we find ourselves in a fit of celebration. Eighteen months of praying, wondering, researching and being challenged to our core all lead up to this day. This morning my husband took one less pill than he did yesterday. Next week he will take another less and so on until by the end of this month my husband will be medicine free for the first time in ten years. I tear up at the thought.
Pink Heart–Filled Cupcakes with Strawberry Taffy Frosting These vanilla bean cupcakes really have heart. Cut or bite into one to see how much love went into them. The best part: they’re surprisingly simple. And if your sweetheart happens to be a chocolate fan, you could just as easily bake your heart into some chocolate cake batter. If you go that route, I recommend finishing them off with generous spoonful of decadent ganache for a true death-by-chocolate experience.

If you’ve been following along, you’re probably aware that I collect cookbooks. Specifically, cookbooks created by New England civic organizations between 1950 and 1980 for fundraising purposes. With yard sale season in full swing, I find myself solvent with new recipe ideas, among them one I found in this vandalized and water-damaged collection.
