A Small, but Tall, Cake
Two new recipes to try today - one for the cake, and the other for the frosting. Both = Fantastic. I was asked to make a dessert for tomorrow evening's Welcome to Woodlands social, and decided to try another cake recipe out of Sky High: Irresistible Triple Layer Cakes. I first made a half batch of the Vanilla Buttermilk batter and made cupcakes to take to small group tonight. Then I proceeded to make the full recipe with three 8-inch cake pans. I also have been wanting to try this recipe for Chocolate Buttercream Frosting, and if Joy says it's the best, I'm willing to give it a shot. I first made one batch for the cupcakes. And because it was so stinkin' good, I made another batch to frost the cake. Don't you love the little waves?! Just take a spoon and, with the back of it, pat the cake to form little spikes. I know I would definitely feel welcomed after a piece of this cake!
