While the world is trying to ice up outside this morning here in Mid-Missouri, I’m going to show you a little recipe from yesterday. It was the hubby’s birthday and I wanted to change up the typical cake result. What better way than with the frosting??
The recipe below is from a 1st edition of America Cooks, my Etsy find and a wonderful reference in case you care to look one up. Be prepared to pay. They are highly sought after and I am grateful to have found mine.
Before the toppings begin though, you naturally have to have the cake. So, whipped it up, poured it into 3 pans, and baked it.
Do you know how much a difference an extra cake layer can make? Trust me, it elevates flavor to a new level. No pun intended.
Very sloppy appearance here but I had only a teeny window of opportunity for the picture taking. Had to work fast to keep the cake layers from sliding and breaking.
And there you go, a little glazed on the sides but it didn’t disappoint the samplers. Mission accomplished, a keeper recipe and another birthday for the books. Have a wonderful rest of your Sunday!
