Let them eat cake.

3 Apr

I have put off baking my first cake from scratch for years. And years. And years. It seemed scary! There’s this thing about cakes falling in the oven or being too dry… It just seemed easier to stick with my stand-bys of cookies and pies.

But then, in honor of a birthday, I bit the bullet and….tah dahhhhh



Look at those sprinkles!



And that dense, moist crumb!

IMG_4572I found out that there are really three keys to making a good cake – Choose a good recipe, make sure you actually have all the ingredients for the cake so you don’t have to go to the grocery store twice in an hour (ughhhh), and have a very willing crowd of people who will tell you all sorts of nice things while they eat it all.

So yeah. Making cakes. Not a nightmare. Who knew?
