This weekend I just had to bake. I spent the whole of Thursday collecting the ingredients, was too lazy to do it on Friday, and so on Saturday I knew I just had to bite the bullet and MAKE THE DAMN CAKE! I am so glad I did:
The Magnolia Bakery Cookbook (it's the one for the Vanilla Birthday Cake, and it works every time- I've made lots of delicious cupcakes from it too) and I always use the icing (or frosting, whatever floats your boat) recipe from The Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook. SO Amazing! Honestly. And then, obviously, I just studded the top with Love Hearts, ostensibly because I had a lot of them hanging around, and, to put it bluntly, I wanted to get rid of them. Into the stomachs of my family mwahahahaha!
So there you have it. I'm not the prettiest cake maker, but I do make things that I definitely want to eat, which is all that really matters in the end! I might just have to go and have another slice now in fact... mmmmm, cake!
