As my friend Lisa says, “what am I gonna do with all these cakes”? Basically, I have been on a cake rampage, so I am sharing a good chunk of it here for you to see. For a while I have wanted to perfect making and decorating cakes, but the problem with cakes is when you make them you end up with a bunch of food to eat! Luckily, K has coworkers that like enjoying cake! We have been sending big chunks of cake in to his work to spread the love. Today’s recipes are for a specific cake I am going to make this fall.
The “clients” (family members) wanted chocolate frosting and vanilla cake to mimic a local bakery’s cake. After making Sweetapolita’s vanilla cake first, I followed it with this super buttery cake from America’s Test Kitchen. Although we loved the light almondy flavor in the first cake, the buttery cake better matches the one my family loves.
