I was reading a fabulous blog called the smitten kitchen...and I stumbled upon a yellow cake recipe! I have one of my own..but the picture of the cake on the blog looked beyond delicious... mouth watering delicious..just by looking at the picture!!!
So today I tried it out... http://smittenkitchen.com/2009/07/best-birthday-cake/
Check out the link above for the recipe. The cake is amazing... however...the frosting recipe I found for fudgey frosting..just didn't cut it for me! I was so disappointed! It was a bitter tasting chocolate..not the milk chocolate creamy taste I was dreaming about! After follwing the smitten recipe for fudgey chocolate frosting I went crazy trying to get it to the flavor I wanted! I didn't want to waste my precious ingredients!! Waste butter...NEVER!!!
I ended up adding melted milk chocolate morsels to the frosting as well as extra powdered sugar. Maybe it's just me!
I LOVE MILK CHOCOLATE!
My new cookie tin (well, it's really old...passed down to me..so it's NEW to me!)...perfect for carrying a few cupcakes.
