I must confess. I haven’t watched a single episode of Game of Thrones till date. But I know that the show is a HUGE deal in the world out there. Mainly because the internet can not stop talking about it, and every Monday for about an hour my husband transforms into a zombie himself as he peers into the glowing screen lost in a fantasy world of his own.

And now that the season finale is over and there is another year to go for the next series, my hubby will have to do with binge watching this show for the nth time. These Sansa’s Lemon Cake are to give him company 🙂

Its been a tough road for Sansa who in season 1 was just a delicate little girl with fairy tale notions of what her life would be like while enjoying Lemon Cake. Reality hit her hard through her nightmare of an ordeal with Joffrey & Cersei first, and Ramsay later. She finally helped win Winterfell back in Season 6, only to be doubted by those around her in Season 7. In S7 final episode she shows great strength and wisdom and redeems herself. For all that she has grown and endured – she surely deserves a little slice of joy – her Lemon Cake.
