I simply love cafés! And coffee shops. And baked goodies. Together they take care of my daily caffeine fix and sugar rush 😉 And at the same time I can just sit and relax for a while, people watch, read, or have some great conversations.

Have you ever heard of Lady Baltimore Cake?
I hadn’t until I came across a recipe and video on Martha Stewart’s website.
This cake combines 2 Filipino dessert specialties made from purple yam (ube). The light and airy purple yam cake layers are filled with a ube halaya (purple yam + condense milk) buttercream.
