Somebody around here has a birthday coming up. It’s not a big one, doesn’t end in zero (thank God), and that certain someone has already asked that there be no fancy presents or dinners this year because of additional expenses. Expenses like prom dresses, bridesmaid dresses, flower girl dresses, first communion dresses, and sweet baby Jesus, there are a lot of dresses to be purchased in this family! Ack!
But that person would like a cake. A vanilla cake with almond buttercream frosting. This recipe is the bomb, and it's what I made the valentine's cupcake frosting with.
Is it wrong that the soon to be birthday girl purchased cake ingredients this past weekend and told the kids that they were there in the cupboard, just waiting for them to spend an evening in harmony together, using the mixing bowls and cracking the eggs?
The gal just wants some cake, dangit. That’s all.
