Blue Cake for Woe (Zoe)
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!
I went a little crazy with the dye!
The face on the left is what you get when you say “Smile for the camera!” That’s her Chandler face. She can laugh and smile just beautifully, but put a camera there and she becomes a goof.
Dad liked it, too, despite there not being chocolate in it!
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!
Chris better bring it! That’s all I can say 🙂
*snort* Can’t wait to see the bake-off pictures. 😀 Seriously, though, this cake is making me very hungry. . .
