It still tasted good though.
(recipe: Smitten Kitchen’s best birthday cake and instant fudge frosting)
I wasn’t a perfectionist with my birthday cake this year.
I’m making myself a birthday cake this weekend. I’m set on making Smitten Kitchen’s best yellow cake, but I’m not set on the chocolate frosting recipe. She uses a sour cream chocolate frosting in the recipe, but mentions some say that it’s too sour and offers her instant fudge frosting as an alternative. I was also considering this cake recipe from Flour bakery and the fluffy chocolate ganache sounds pretty awesome. Lastly, as I was looking up the cake link I found this classic recipe from Hershey’s, which sounds solid. So many chocolate frosting recipes! Which one should I pick?
The photography and styling on this blog is unbelievable.
Pumpkin cake with brown butter icing and caramelized walnuts. I made it for Kelly’s birthday yesterday. Delicious and surprisingly easy. Recipe from Martha Stewart.
