The Best Valentines Day Cake Ever
I've been making this cake for Ben for Valentines day every year since we've been married, and it is AMAZING. I hope I'm not breaking any family pacts or secrets by sharing it here... it's actually my sister's husband's grandmother's famous recipe, and surprisingly easy and one of the most delicious cakes you will ever taste. And it's beautiful pink hue makes it a no-brainer for Valentine's day (and while I don't have one, this would be great with a heart-shaped cake pan). You can make it as a layer cake, cupcakes, or whatever. Anyway, here it is! Enjoy!
