Spring is officially upon us here in Minnesota, for me that means alot of soccer. I had three games this weekend and was worried I wouldn't be able to make anything. No fear though, I squeezed in these beautiful cakes into my schedule.
First, though I just wanted to say I applied for a job! It's a serving position at a senior high-rise, and I am very excited to see if they will hire me.

Add a slice of clementine (cut about 1cm thick) on top of the sugar. Using an ice-cream scoop, evenly measure out the cake batter and dollop onto each clementine (about 3/4 of the way up the pan).

Until Next Week!
