Vanilla Almond Bundt with Strawberry Glaze

Another cake! I swear I eat more then cake... sometimes. Cakes are just so much fun to make and they make everyone happy. So this is just a little post about a simple cake. This bundt cake is extra luscious, so rich with amazing flavor and soft but not too light. I added a fresh strawberry glaze and blueberries. It could also be just simply dusted with powdered sugar.

Even after making cupcakes everyday at my new job, I still come home and just want to bake more. It  is so nice to have a job that I actually love to do and want to go to work. And the have people where I can ask them my baking questions or talk about foodie things is kinda amazing. Being in the city is also so nice but I have to resist the urge to walk to places like bi-rite creamery or humphry slocombe and get amazing ice cream every single day. I'll space out my visits, well I'll try to....

But i will leave you on a happy note! I'm going to Monterey tomorrow, just for the night but still excited! Get to want boys go spear fishing and wander around  taking photos. Should be an exciting two days off. When u was asked to go, my first thought was, but when will I bake???? Two days from baking won't hurt, I just like how that's what I think about. Not when are we going, where are we staying, etc. Happy weekend!
