Mother's Day Cake

Okay men out there...husbands, sons, grandsons, nephews, whoever you are (even the women...daughters, nieces, granddaughters), you are thinking about that special lady in your life that deserves the very best on this Mother's Day. You have spent hours in the card aisles, flower shops, and various stores trying to find "just the right one" for her. You want everything to be special for her. After all the time put into the other things, an oversight of yours is simply one of the things your special lady might appreciate the most. The dessert. Of course, going to the store and grabbing something would work, but how would a wonderfully delicious homemade cake that you spent time preparing make her feel? Keep reading...I have a recipe just for you to make for her. You don't have to be a world-renowned chef to make this gem of a cake. In fact, you may have never baked anything ever in your life and you will do just fine.
