Perfectly Imperfect Cake {Wordless Wednesday}

The cake is a fairly simple chocolate, from The Joy of Cooking. We used Trader Joe's lemon curd for the filling, and added the zest and juice of a lemon to the frosting. All that was wonderful, but in my haste to make the cake I accidentally added a bunch of cinnamon instead of cocoa to the cake batter. Everyone loved the cinnamon, but it completely overshadowed the lemon. Oh well! We made homemade ice cream to go with it, made with Oregon seascape strawberries purchased at the farmers market that morning.

Anna decorated this cake for Brian's birthday all by herself!
