Mom's Lemon Birthday Cake
Because I was not sure whether I would make it home for Mom's birthday or not and didn't have a lot of time once I did arrive, Mom's birthday cake was made by my brother and his girlfriend this year. They made a lovely gluten-free lemon bundt cake with a lemon icing. They were however, happy to have me pipe on the cake. I had forgotten to take home any cake decorating tools as I wasn't sure how much cake decorating I would be doing, so I just used a plastic bag. But I managed to pipe 'Happy 50th Birthday Mom' and some flowers and a border. I used a little melted strawberry jam to color the icing a very light pink naturally.
