Hi friends!  It’s Taco Tuesday!

Instead of sharing a recipe for tacos, I thought I would share a recipe that I tried a few weeks back for Mexican Pink Cake.  I’m not a big fan of the sweet breads that are found in a Mexican bakery, but I absolutely LOVE ❤ this cake.  It’s like eating a big, thick, yummy sugar cookie!

I’m already thinking of the different flavors and colors that I can add to this cake…I’ll keep you updated.

Here you go…your tacos are asking for dessert…wink, wink…nudge, nudge…
