I’ve made many cakes the easy way—baked, frosted, and served right from the pan. I figured it was time I tried to make a real out-of-the-pan, multi-layered, decorated cake. So, I made Daniel a birthday cake over the weekend. It’s certainly not perfect, but I love how it turned out. Imperfections just make cakes charmingly rustic, right?
I went with white cake and buttercream frosting. Here’s the cake recipe I used, and here’s the frosting recipe. Delicious! Daniel isn’t a dessert person, but he even asked for seconds. The cake was so fluffy and moist, I’ll definitely be making that recipe again. The frosting was great too, but I couldn’t fully enjoy it knowing how many sticks of butter it contained!
