Another cake this week, but this time I stuck to the recipe and didn’t change it over into cupcakes (which are easier to transport to work).
This is what I’d think of as an old-fashioned birthday cake – you know the one, made from a Betty Crocker cake mix and a tub of pre-made frosting. The only change I made to the cake was to add sprinkles.
My coworkers liked the cake – it’s a solid cake, nothing fancy or unique about it. But it’s always good to have a reliable, simple cake recipe in your pocket. Larry thought it was just okay. I liked the frosting – cream cheese gives it a bit of tang and more stability than a straight buttercream (although it’s a bit on the sweet side).
