This past weekend we celebrated my grandfathers birthday with a family lunch. I was on cake duty so turned to my trusty Pinterest friends for some inspiration. This was a new recipe for me and I'm pleased to say it was a smashing success. My cousin and I prepped the cake on Saturday and assembled it Sunday *The cake is quite dense so remains fresh until the following day #partywin Check out the recipe below and spoil your family this week!You Will Need
