Caketopolous!!

Posted on April 27, 2012. Filed under: Deserts | Tags: , |

Since I made cheesecake for Maureen’s birthday, I asked Neil what dessert he would like for his birthday. He’s always been on the simple side, so he asked for white cake with butterscotch frosting. I decided on two layer because, hey, why not? I could only find one circle and one square pan, so I went with that. The only problems I had during this whole thing was that I couldn’t get the cake out of the pan! Both of them ended up breaking a little bit…so I MAY have made WAY to much frosting, but I’m ok with that, it can be used for a lot of things because there really wasn’t enough powdered sugar, so the frosting is closer to a glaze, and I’m ok with that (Neil was to) .

I’m always striving to be better at my presentation, and while it wasn’t a perfect presentation yesterday, I think the cake turned out beautifully .I hope you try these recipes out!

Awesome deliciousness

1 cup white sugar1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup milk

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9×9 inch pan or line a muffin pan with paper liners.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the sugar and butter. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine flour and baking powder, add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Finally stir in the milk until batter is smooth. Pour or spoon batter into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven. For cupcakes, bake 20 to 25 minutes. Cake is done when it springs back to the touch.
