Today is Memorial Day, but it’s also my mother’s birthday. While you’re all probably grilling and pie-making, I made a cake to celebrate a very special lady.
My mom claims to not like cake and dessert, but really I know she’s just picky. She loves certain desserts and she loves everything banana. No crazy combinations here, because of her picky palate, I went the simple route.
I made a simple banana cake like the little banana cake I made before (recipe doubled for a full cake), but with a few changes to the filling
I whipped up a ton of whipped cream with sugar and a touch of vanilla for filling and frosting, fried some bananas with rum and added some slivered almonds.
and ta-da! A birthday cake just for my mother. I added some fresh flowers for a pop of color.
Happy Birthday Mom!
Is your mother picky about desserts like mine? I feel like that’s one thing my children will never have to worry about. I’ll pretty much enjoy anything.
