Esta es la historia, quer?a hornear un pastel para mi cumplea?os pero ten?a muy poco tiempo para planear algo ?muy especial?. Hector me sugiri? hacer el Golden Lemon Almond Cake de RHC book. El problema era que ten?a solo un loaf pan de 12? de largo y no el de 8? que sugiere Rose. De todas formas decid? hacerlo la noche antes de mi celebraci?n. Estuve muy triste cuando saqu? el pastel del horno y vi que hab?a quedado muy bajito, pens? que estaba horrible y perd? la ilusi?n de celebrar mi cumplea?os con algo especial. PERO al otro d?a SORPRESA! lo prob? y era el pastel m?s espectacular que alguna vez haya probado, no lo pod?a creer. Suave, h?medo, de sabor exquisito, incre?ble. Este era el pastel ?muy especial? con el que hab?a so?ado celebrar mi cumplea?os. Qued? muy FELIZ!
This is the story of my Golden Lemon Almond Cake?. I want to bake a cake for my birthday but I didn?t have enough time to plan something ?special?. Hector advice me to make the Golden Lemon Almond Cake from RHC book. The only problem was that I only had one loaf pan of 12? and not the 8? one that Rose suggest. Aside from that, I decide to make it the night before the party. I was super sad when I took the cake out from the oven and saw that the cake hadn?t really risen and was semi flat. I thought that was ugly and I lost the illusion to celebrate my birthday with something ?special?. But to my SURPRISE!! It tasted great! It was the most amazing cake I had ever taste, I can?t even believe it, Soft, moist, delicious and Incredible. This was the ?special cake? I dreamed to celebrate my Birthday with. I felt super HAPPY.

Feliz Cumpleanos, Ceci!  Despite your worries about the finished cake, the slices look beautiful on the platter- I especially love the picture of the close-up of the crumb.
