  • Why did the lemon stop halfway through making the cake? It ran out of juice!
  • What did one slice of lemon cake say to the other? “You're the zest!”

Every Mother’s Day is an opportunity to tell the special moms in our lives just how much they mean to us. Today, we invite you to say it with our "Salty ‘Amalfi’ Lemon Olive Oil Cake lavishly topped with Outstanding Olive Oil Frosting! It’s a beloved favorite at Sticky Fingers Cooking classes, renowned for its rich flavor and moist, tender, crumb. And it’s just perfect for the occasion because doesn’t every mom deserve a treat as wonderful as she is?

Why This Cake?

Inspired by the lemon groves and olive orchards of Italy’s magnificent Amalfi coast, this divine cake and delightfully unexpected frosting are the answer to every mom’s dreams. (Seriously, what’s not to love?) Thanks to the absence of butter, it’s not just healthier, it’s a breeze to prepare, making it the perfect baking project for families. And since we know some kids love a sneak peek, we put together a TikTok tutorial:
