During the holidays, I like to make treats and put them in nice Treat Boxes or Treat Bags.

I made a light cake that wasn't too sweet for my daughter's birthday. She recently turned four years old and happens to love fresh strawberries so I made sure her cake included them. The cake is a basic sponge cake with whipped cream and fresh sliced strawberries. You can use any of your favorite cake recipes, whether […] continue reading...
