Here comes my transparency, to my friends and readers: My birthday was last July. Okay, okay...it's now March! I made this cake for my own birthday, because it's become my own self-inflicted tradition to bake my own cake, because it's fun! I kept meaning to post this recipe, but Pumpkin Season came around, then Peppermint Season...and so I decided to hold on with sharing this recipe until spring. So, without further adieu...here it is!
Yes, I enjoy baking cakes, very much. I'm not adverse to cake mixes at all, though I get a personal satisfaction baking a bake from scratch. Canned frostings, however, will never find a home in my pantry. I think they taste awful, to be honest. I'm not a fan of the texture and artificial flavors-- especially when making homemade buttercream is so easy to do!
