So this post may seem a little late, seeing as America’s Cup took place last week and finished up on Sunday, June 1st,  but it’s never too early to start reminiscing.  What better way is there to reminisce about the Oracle Team USA Spithill winning the 2011-2012 AC World Series than making a cake to celebrate!  The America’s Cup Lemon Sugar Cake is a great way to continue celebrating America’s win until the Louis Vuitton Race in San Francisco on August 21st.
