I recently had a bridal shower and had to make a cake. Not my first time making a cake for a special occasion, but it was the most formal of them I have ever done. Especially for someone who has been to culinary art school so there is a little bit of pressure here.
I felt compelled to actually do some “practice” so that I can get the hang of baking something of this nature again. It is not so much the cake part, that part for me is well “a piece of cake” ( I know, terrible phrase but I just couldn’t help it ). However, it is the icing part of the procedure that always gets me. Maybe it is because I get lazy or forget to do something, fill something, etc. that makes it just the cake that more novice.
What did I decide to do? http://www.howsweeteats.com/2011/03/one-bowl-vanilla-cupcakes-for-two/
Result? Well… Here you go. This was the practice round in the making.
And here is the actual result.
It was so amazing that I have 2 more slices in the freezer. Enough said. A sincere thanks to King Arthur Flour. If you want the recipe, check out their baking recipe book.
