Hello everyone! Wow, it really has been a while hasn’t it? Sorry about that, there has been a lot going on lately but I’m going to try to be posting more regularly starting now.
In other news, my mom had a birthday a while ago and I thought I would show you a picture of the cake I helped decorate, unfortunately I don’t have the recipe, but this is what it looked like:
It was a vanilla cake with a chocolate buttercream frosting.
I made another chocolate cake recently as well. I love this recipe it is super moist. I may have shared the cake recipe on this blog before, but if you haven’t seen it, take a look! It’s great! I got the recipe here!
1 cup margarine
1 3/4 cups white sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups milk
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9×13 inch pan. Sift together the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the milk, mixing just until incorporated. Pour batter into prepared pan.
Bake in the preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.
For frosting a used a simple buttercream recipe! They were both pretty tasty!
