Mother’s Day Bundt Cake

 

Mother’s Day is very special for me. I lost my mom when I was nine years old. A few years ago, when I got serious about writing and cooking I decided to bake her a cake each year. My mother had a very special palate. She never turned away from anything new, she even ate Rose petals… she was a free spirit and I miss her so much. Here is the cake I made for her today….
