I am about to embark upon an orgy of baking. For E’s party, for the sailors I’m hosting Monday (and for the sailor’s goody bags…I want to send them back to the ship with care packages full of cookies and such).
My go-to yellow cake recipe is here. (Just make the yellow cake. Ignore the frosting and instructions on how to make it a strawberry gran marnier cake)
My go-to buttercream frosting recipe is here. (Warning, if you don’t follow the instructions EXACTLY, it doesn’t come out well. Tint appropriately with color as needed).
As I try the recipes, I’ll let you know what worked out and what I wasn’t crazy about.
