Today is Reese’s birthday, so obviously we’re celebrating with cake! Personally, I’m also celebrating a little bit because I’ve been contributing to the DJ blog for a whole year. How crazy! I still remember how excited I was to do the first post. And there’s more southern sweet goodness to come, y’all!
Draper James has some super cute cherry patterned items in their home section right now that are so perfect for spring! That was the inspiration behind all the cherry in this cake. 😉 There’s the cherry filling, plus cherry frosting, and of course, cherries on top!
AND it has my new favorite fluffy yellow cake recipe! It’s always great to have go-to basic recipes like this one. It would be perfect with any kind of frosting, and it’s so easy to whip up. It uses cake flour, which helps give it the perfect fluffy texture.
Head over to the Draper James blog for the recipes and wish Reese a happy birthday! 🙂
So pretty! Perfect for spring too.
This is so perfect for a spring or summer birthday! And it is beautiful!

Um, I realize that Reese was not there at your house eating this cake but YOU GOT TO MAKE REESE WITHERSPOON A BIRTHDAY CAKE FOR HER WEBSITE! That is so cool! Plus this cake is just so darned pretty. I love cherry and I bet this is delicious!
oh my gosh, this sounds amazing. I wish I had a slice!
