Today, my mom came over for the day with our puppies. I call them puppies, but they are actually quite old for puppies.
Mom helped me figure out my apron pattern. The fabric is all cut out and ready to go!
Mom then left with Dad to go back to hear more music at Rib America Festival, and Brian and I went to his parent’s house in Greenwood to celebrate his Mom’s birthday. His parent’s house is literally 20 minutes away from us, so it is very convenient.
For Kate’s (Brian’s mom) birthday, she asked me to make a cake…white on white. I had baked boxed cakes before, a layered homemade carrot cake, and numerous homemade cupcakes so I thought that I could handle a birthday cake. I searched for the perfect recipe, and here is what I came up with. Although it wasn’t perfect and I made a list of things I will change for next time. I still think it turned out pretty tasty!
White on White Birthday Cake (original recipe from How Sweet Eats)
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 cup margarine
- 4 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 3 cups flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup margarine (I think mine was a little melty because I used margarine instead of butter)
- 2 lbs powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 Tbsp vanilla
