Selby’s 30th Birthday Cake

Today is my sister, Selby’s, 30th birthday. It’s the beginning of a new era in her life as she closes the chapter on her twenties and embarks on the exciting adventure that her thirties will bring. Although she has been dreading this new number, her future looks very bright. She has an adorable 16 month old boy and her husband, Kevin, is over half-way done with his anesthesia residency.

To ring in this big milestone, we celebrated a few weeks early when my sister and her family were in town at the beginning of the month. My sister is a serious lemon-lover and she requested the same cake I made her last year: lemon curd cake with lemon Swiss meringue buttercream frosting.

The only difference from this year compared to last is that I made my own lemon curd for the cake batter and to sandwich between the layers this time around. I followed this helpful YouTube video and the resulting curd was scrumptiously tart and addictive.

The cake didn’t make it through the weekend and the birthday girl gave it great reviews.

Happy 30th birthday, Selby. I love you!

I can’t believe how big this boy has gotten compared to this photo from one year ago…
