This delicious yellow cake with chocolate frosting and pretty red flowers can make all the difference in your summer afternoons – take it from me. After lunch and before dinner can last a long time in our summer heat. Cake parties can bring joy and quiet if you spend a little bit of time setting up. We like cold milk with our cake but you may go with ice cream or just straight up cake.
And, sworn truth, it makes up ridiculously happy to spread out a blanket under the kitchen table and eat under – not at – the table. Whatever you choose, your day will close on a delightful, cakeful (no one evens remembers that it is 120 outside) note.1
