my dear friend heather has been making this cake for years.
and since i want to be just like her when i grow up,
i decided to try it out on my own :)
the recipe is super easy. it seemed like a no-brainer.
so i'm about to make the cake one night,
when i realized that i only have black sesame seeds in my cupboard,
no poppy seeds. bummer.
so i make a special trip to the grocery store to buy one thing... poppy seeds.
i make my purchase, come home and mix up this cake.
as i'm putting the cake into the oven i realized
i used black sesame seeds instead (!!!!)
i literally went to the store to by poppy seeds,
and purchased the exact wrong thing which i already had at home.
WHO DOES THAT?
ANYWAY... while i don't recommend this cake with black sesame seeds,
it wasn't actually all that bad.
but maybe just follow the instructions. LOL :)
