Last night we had a very special occasion for a cake recipe...Cara's 30th birthday!
We had a surprise birthday party, and while Brian distracted her and took her out to dinner, I snuck into their house and prepared some yummy food and drinks. I pretty much begged Brian to let me make the cake so I could try out this recipe.
I had all of the ingredients in my pantry except 2- butter extract (which sounds and looks disgusting) and cream cheese.
I started with the three layers of cake, whipped up the icing then layered them all on top of each other. The icing was a little slippery and it made the layers of the cake slide around a bit, so I stuck some toothpicks in the cake to hold it in place.
Thanks Palmer for the pretty handwriting.

I made the cake ahead on Monday and stored it in a tupperware cake container. It stored great. It was moist and absolutely delicious. You could hardly tell it's healthy...sort of.
313 calories per slice and 8 grams of fat. We had about 16 people and ate the entire cake.

Stephanie was super excited about rating it!
