I think my made-up name for this cake would be a great name for a restaurant or bakery, right? In this case, I called it what it was. It’s a French Vanilla cake with extra vanilla in the icing. The slightly obnoxious shade of blue I colored the icing was not entirely intentional. The cake was for my son’s 13th birthday (April is THE month of birthdays in our family) and he loves blue. However, I giddily dumped blue coloring in and flipped on my Kitchen Aid without remembering how much “blue” you get out of blue coloring. Some icing colors take a ton of colorant, some surprise you with their vitality. So that’s what happened. The cake was very blue and very vanilla, but we liked it anyway.
Can’t believe I put thirteen candles on and my “Millenium Baby” is now a teenager.
Another week, another emptied cake plate. Now that summer is coming up, I better line up some summer themed cakes. And stock the baking cabinet to continue The Year of Cake. I’m having a lot of fun, and I hope you’re enjoying a taste, too!
