Since we missed Zoe’s birthday by a week and her birthday party, too, Chris and I wanted to do something for her. Yesterday I made the cake. I ended up using a simple white cake recipe and made cream cheese frosting (8oz cream cheese, 1/2 stick butter, 4c powdered sugar for one batch, double for more) and made a two layer cake. This is my first time making a cake from scratch. I’m no cake decorator, but I had a lot of fun making it! It turned out very moist, too!
My SIL said that the cake was better than the slice of red velvet cake/cheesecake at the Cheesecake Factory we’d had earlier that day…which is b.s. if you ask me! hah! The two most competitive people I know, Chris and my SIL, are going to have a cake baking contest between themselves in a few weekends. That should be very interesting!
