We had a wonderful Sunday celebrating our moms. Of course, as with any grand celebration, the baking and cooking begins days before, so on Friday, I baked my first ever vanilla butter cake from scratch. Saturday morning, I made a pastry cream and lemon curd to add to the cake to make a trifle, then went and helped my mom cook for Sunday. All of the Vander Kooi side came over to their house after church, so we had a great time hanging out and eating good food.
