There were several other special guests there as well, including Joanne Chang, of the wonderful Flour Bakery (who I wished I had gotten the chance to meet!) and little Isabelle, from page 379 of the cookbook. And I even met another foodie/baker who'll be blogging soon at Eating In Or Out...maybe we can convince her to join the second round the Heavenly Cake Baker club!
In the end, while both cakes were - of course - delicious, my favorite of the two was the Golden Lemon Almond Cake. So good in fact, that I've chosen to make it again this weekend as my free choice for the HCB club.
Here are my pictures (lots!) from the event. My entry for the Golden Lemon Almond Cake will follow later this weekend.
