I have made many birthday cakes and baked goods in general. I really find it is no fuss to make a sky high birthday cake! 1-2-3... ready!
When I bake for others and by that I mean my kid and my husband as well, I take into account their tastes and preferences.
When I bake for me on my birthday, I always try something new, be it a flavor or a technique.
This time I tried a new recipe for white cake and for buttercream? Well I had on my mind for a long time the "cooked" or ermine buttercream!
The white cake is by the lovely Sweetapolita.
Very good, very tasty!
I found the ermine buttercream recipe on the site of Summer's Cake Paper Party! A very trusted site with great recipes!
You start with a roux, which you beat in the butter.
I couldn't get the buttercream to be as silky as SMB, but it is very tasty!
The colour is rather intense, but I loved it!
