Growing up my mother was a single mom after my dad died when I was 10. She still made us birthday cakes and I was almost grown before I knew a bakery cake existed. She used cake mixes and jazzed them up. She is in bad health now and I offered to make her birthday cake. This is the one she chose! I hope it turns out as good as hers!!
