I love cinnamon in everything, so no surprise this snickerdoodle cake is one of my favorites. Cinnamon cookies; cinnamon latte coffee; cinnamon body scrub; basically all things that taste and smell like cinnamon are at the top of my list. More than any other season, winter is the most cinnamon-y one. Of course anything baked with cinnamon is a must.My dear friend Natalie (of the killer blog oogio.net) baked this gorgeous snickerdoodle cake and brought it over for us to photograph, and of course eat up. It was the perfect day. We went to the Carmel market; we got coffee; we took a ton of photos, and gossiped about everything and everyone. And we laughed. A lot.Beyond having a great day together we took some really awesome photo backdrops. Natalies cake recipe is delicious, and it was really hard not to finish the all cake strait up. Do you love snickerdoodle cookies? If the answer to that is yes, you should run to the kitchen and get starting on this amazing festive recipe. It’s easy and it makes your whole house smell like Christmas.
