This past weekend was my mom's birthday! Since they moved about an hour away and with both girls in school, we don't get to see them as frequently as we would like, so we chose to host her and my dad for dinner and cake Saturday evening! It was a fun evening chatting about life, playing with the kids, and surprising them with my husband's first tattoo (haha, they laughed...*whew*)!
I love baking cakes. Though I am not a skilled in any way at decorating cakes, I really enjoy whipping up the batter, slathering it all in frosting, and adding a few extra touches to make it special!
I came upon this recipe in America's Test Kitchen: TV Show Cookbook and it seemed like a simple white cake recipe (my favorite!) that could easily be customized for any occasion!
It's moist, buttery, and simply sweet!
What is your favorite type of cake?
