He knew EXACTLY what kind of cake he wanted for his 6th birthday. And it sure wasn’t Mommy’s same old shortcut, store-bought cake mix crap. You see, I’m so not a baker.

Chocolate Yogurt Snack Cakes

[imagebrowser id=16] My buddy, David Lebovitz, just came out with a brand new book called David Lebovitz’s The Sweet Life in Paris.
