I don’t always post desserts, but when I do, I post cake.  I am going to post more than just cake in the future, so don’t worry. Spring is here and the weather is finally starting to break! I seriously thought warmer weather was never going to come. Let us celebrate the passing of old man winter with a bright fun checkered spring cake.

Enjoy!
