Cake Day

Today is my husband's birthday. A few months ago he had mentioned liking red velvet cake, something I have never even tasted, let alone tried to make, but i decided at that moment that I was going to try to make one. I started searching about a month ago for a good recipe, i found one on allrecipe that had great reviews, and a lot of them. This morning I started working on the cake and icing. I normally just make butter cream icing, but decided to try something new.  I found a recipe that called for regular sugar, milk, flour and vanilla. I was really confused about how it was going to work out and not be grainy, but it did. it was liked a whipped icing, pretty good, light and airy. I made cupcakes and a cake, i tasted a cupcake, it was kinda dry, the cake seemed to be more moist, but still on the dry side. I'll definitely be changing the recipe if I make it again.

I was also asked today to make a cake for my mother in law's party which is tomorrow, her birthday was yesterday. I had a chocolate cake recipe I have been wanting to try, and nothing is better on chocolate cake than peanut butter icing!  I haven't tasted the cake yet, but the icing was delicious. I can't wait to taste it all together tomorrow!

I'm far from making cakes with cake delivery nationwide, but I'm excited to try some new recipes and make some cakes for things other than my families parties.
