I thought I would share with you another birthday cake I made. We celebrated my daughters first birthday this past weekend. Here are her cakes. The big cake is 2 9x13 cakes put together and the small round cake is one that I made in a Pyrex dish.
I cheated and used store bought cake mix that I stocked up on for $.77 a box. The frosting was a new buttercream recipe that I tried and it was delicious!!
Here is the recipe. You can find the original recipe here.
3 cups confectioners sugar
1 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla extract *I used a little more, about 2 tsp
1-2 Tablespoons heavy whipping cream
Mix sugar and butter with mixer till blended then on high for 3 minutes. Add vanilla and cream and blend for another minute. Add more cream till you reach desired constistancy.
Here are my little baggies I used to decorate. They are just sandwich sized baggies and I cut a small hole in the corner.And here is my daughter enjoying her first birthday cake!
