Cake from scratch! (Easy vanilla cake recipe is included)
Over the past several years, I have been making more and more food from scratch. I would say from hot drinks to sauces and soups to cakes and cookies. I have even made my own cleaning products! (And yes, they do really work)
The last week of December was my husbands Birthday. Cake with tons of icing is his favorite dessert. Well, that and banana pudding! I surprised him with a birthday cake with Carolina blue icing (Yes, we are Carolina (UNC) fans) I also surprised him with a birthday party at Outback Steak House! After we ate our meal, I cut into the cake I made for him. The entire table of 15 people were amazingly quiet as they ate the cake! I offered our server a slice as well and she took it. A few minutes later, she came out and said that was the best cake she had ever eaten! After shoveling their cake in, my guests said the same thing and everyone wanted to take some home!
Lesson learned: If you want a great tasting cake...Make this one!
