Skinnygirl Margarita Cake {recipe redo} and Happy Birthday





Melissa's twenty second birthday was Saturday, but since she had plans with her boyfriend and other friends, we celebrated a day early and took her out for dinner at our club. We sat on the patio and since it was a lovely, cool night, it was the perfect way to spend a Friday night. There was a musician singing some old songs and playing the guitar and they brought her a hot fudge sundae, with a candle to mark the occasion.

But, she also needed a birthday cake. I let her pick from this fun list of 100 bundt cakes and she chose the yummy Skinnygirl Margarita cake; one I made for Megan a few years ago. It really is delicious, with just a hint of the margarita flavor. With a little decoration, it makes a really pretty and festive cake for a grown up daughter. I hope her birthday was as happy as she makes us every day of the year.

Happy Monday!

  1. That cake looks amazing and so yummy!! I need to try that recipe!

  2. What a lovely daughter you have and I'm sure she had a very happy birthday weekend! The cake looks yummy!! The hot fudge sundae sounds even better! :)

  3. Happy birthday to Melissa!! A good weekend for birthdays--my husband's birthday was Sunday. I don't think I can even look at anything margarita-related for a little while though--they make them bigger than I'm used to in Chicago, which is where we celebrated! :)

  4. Lovely birthday daughter . . .
    I hope she has a wonderful year!

  5. The cake is so pretty.........I may have to try it sometime. At first I thought it was a pic of you and I thought "wow, she's not old enuf to have an empty nest." As I read on I realized it's your daughter, what a beautiful young woman. I just stumbled onto your blog...nice blog.
