From as far back as I can remember, mom would let Sister and me lick the mixer beaters.
Mother made wedding cakes, and catered weddings.
She got me hooked on cake batter.
And now, sometimes I make a cake just so I can eat the batter.
It is good for the soul.
So, Internet, believe me when I say I know cake batter.
And this cake batter…it is fabulous.
I showed great restraint in only licking the beater for this cake.
Only because it was for the boy.
Normally, the chips get a choice of what kind of cake they are going to get, but this time, I pulled out my TWD cook book, pointed to the recipe and said “This is the cake your getting for your birthday.”
He only requested that I make cream cheese icing for it, instead of the butter cream.
Who am I to refuse cream cheese icing?
I heart cream cheese icing.
And because I love cream cheese icing that boy so much, I doubled the recipe.
This cake was so good, I could have eaten the entire thing all by myself.
Instead, we had a party…and I had to share that glorious cake with 4 men, and one woman.
I was lucky to even get a piece.
But that didn’t matter, because I had a bowl of cream cheese icing left over…muahahahahahha
