I've been making a lot of cakes lately. Not because I'm that great of a baker. I can bake, but my cakes will never be put in a magazine. But I kind of like them that way. I want you KNOW they're not store bought :) There's just nothing like a homemade cake.
A spice cake... so pretty sitting on the table.
Since we didn't do big parties for Graham or Samuel's birthdays this year, I let them pick a cake out of my Betty Crocker cookbook.
I love the vintage appeal of some of these.
Graham chose a banana cake.
Samuel chose a caramel cake. It was delicious. I could eat that frosting with a spoon.
And how pretty is this cake? We cut into it before I took a picture.
A maraschino cherry cake! I can't take credit for this one. My mom made it.
I may have to make another one of these for Valentine's Day.
The Betty Crocker cookbook has lots of unusual cakes to try out. I think I might have to keep on making them. I'll let you know which ones are my favorite.
