As I mentioned in my last post, I've been taking a cake decorating class through Michael's. It's the Wilton method. I've been making a WHOLE LOT of cakes over the past few months. Its been a couple busy baking months for my oven!
I wanted a super delicious cake to take to a Labor Day Fireworks party, so I turned to my trusty cookbook, Vintage Cakes by Julie Richardson. There is a definite chance that I will cook every recipe from this book within a years time...everything from the book is just so delicious! For a girl that finds most of her recipes on the internet, this is really saying something. I've even made one of the recipes twice! Honey Bee Cake, I'm looking at you!
The Pink Cake is a classic party cake. It's chocolate layer cake with raspberry buttercream. It is absolutely heavenly.
This picture cracks me up because I'm wearing the same outfit I had on for Pilates earlier that day. Something just not right about making desserts while wearing your gym clothes!
Speaking of wish lists, I own exactly one apron. I got in on clearance after Halloween one year and figured I would wear it once a year while prepping for our annual Halloween bash. Except its my only apron, so I wear it all the time. I'm comfortable with this level of dorkiness.
Silly pose with the completed cake..I swear, one of these days I'm going to drop one of these and be horrified. I'll probably sit down and eat it off my floor while I cry.
The recipe is available on Epicurious, though I really do think you should buy this lady's book.
