Nothing says "Happy birthday!" like a sweet table!

A few weeks ago I got to spend two unforgettable weeks with my two best friends in the world, my mom and my sister.  The three of us live thousands of miles apart, and we hadn't been together since my wedding, three years ago!
So you can imagine how excited I was that not only was I getting two weeks of quality time with them, but that it so happened that the dates coincided with both their birthdays! 

An impromptu sweet table was obviously in order!

My mom doesn't care for fondant, so I made a rustic SUPER TALL lemon-raspberry-poppy cake, with lemon cream cheese frosting and lemon curd filling, topped with fresh strawberries. 
I also made raspberry and lemon-orange blossom macarons, the former being my mom's favourite!

Happy birthday Mamati & Hinda!
