hint of autumn: spectacular lemon curd cake and spice cookies




Right on time, the wind has shifted.  Mornings are suddenly cooler, and I'm drawn to the watery places, before they freeze.  Afternoons are still warm and humid, but early mornings bring the swing of coolness.

I've been busy, making a birthday cake for my daughter, a gorgeous lemon curd delight with a lovely buttercream.  It was so hot that day that the cake slid apart as I delivered it in the late afternoon, only two miles away.  But, boy - it was one of the best cakes I've ever made.  Bookmark, bookmark!

Cookies for my grands, first few days of school, their favorites - spicy, sturdy Spice Cookies for the lunchboxes.  These are terrific for shipping, to all your kids away from home, as well as a welcoming of autumn weather.

Hope you also get out there to enjoy this September weather, wherever you are!

You are very kind, Nana - the frosting job was a hasty one, and the heat and humidity a challenge to that silky buttercream. But who cares? - the cake tasted fabulous!

That cake is so pretty and it looks delicious. Even if it slid apart, I'll just bet it disappeared. The spice cookies seem like the perfect fall cookie too. Yum!

Tomorrow it's supposed to be 95 degrees!! No baking for the next couple of days but its cooling off by the weekend. Crazy, huh?
