So I made this really pretty cake for our small group a few weeks ago and forgot to post it.
But I'm SUPER proud of it.
It's a yellow cake with my homemade raspberry sauce on top and then a
whipped frosting to top it all off.
I used a fun icing tip to make all the flowery dots
Josh was working that night and so I figured why not- it took 30-45 minutes to cover it.
If you try this you'll want to put the icing bag in the fridge every
once in awhile so they stay stiff flowers and not soggy ones
Vanilla Yellow Cake:
3 cups flour; sifted (I know sifting seems silly but it makes for smoother cake mix!)
2 cups sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
1 cup butter; in slices
1 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla
preheat oven 350 degrees F
1 Combine flour, sugar, powder, salt
2 On low speed mix in butter until combined
2 In another bowl whisk eggs, milk, vanilla
3 Add wet ingredients into dry in portions and mix only until incorporated
4 Flour a cake pan and pour in batter
5 Bake 25-30 minutes until toothpick comes out clean
1 Spread raspberry sauce around top of cake
2 Then put the icing in the bag and pick a tip
3 Pipe tall flowers first around the edges so the raspberry sauce doesn't run out
4 Then pipe the top starting at the outside edge. Make a complete circle around and then continue as
you go inward in circles
5 Then make it to the edges. Go down a whole row first and go row to row around the cake
6 Finally go back around the cake and fill in any holes
WALLA! It turns out really pretty and then I threw some raspberries on top!
It was a hit and it looked really fun.
