(WHO is that cutie doing dishes in the background?!)
In a few days I will be baking the cake you see above, except ten million times prettier. It will be THE cake for my cousin Emily’s baby shower. I can’t wait to show you the final design!
The cake itself is an excellent recipe for white cake. I found it on TastyKitchen.com, and tested it out first because you just never know with scratch cakes. My husband and I don’t even prefer white cake, so you know this one’s good! Its not only easy but perfectly delicious.
The icing recipe uses white chocolate to make a rich, decadent buttercream. I added lemon zest because its just so darn good with raspberry, and my cousin personally requested raspberry filling.
I brought the rest of this cake to work and immediately made new friends. One co-worker asked me for the recipe and then texted me throughout the night for tips as she was making it. 🙂 And I used to worry she didn’t like me. Guess we’re good now.
Enjoy the preview pics. The baby-shower cake is to come!!
