Easter Lily Cake

Easter Lily Cake

TIW_Easter Lily Cake_PhotoGrowing up, one of my favorite things about Easter was the traditional Easter Lily cake that my Great- Aunt Lily would bake every year. She lived to be 103 and loved to spend her free time baking cakes, cookies and candy. As a kid I loved to bake with her and I think of her when I make her toffee, fudge and these little cakes. My daughter, Lily, is named for her. This is a simple cake that is baked in 4” ring mold and folded into a cone while still hot. When it cools, fill it with sweetened whipped cream and garnish it with a long stemmed cherry.
Enjoy! May these cakes become a tradition in your family as well!
