One thing I am never tired of is baking cakes. Even if it had been a hectic day, the thought of taking out my measuring cups, pans, blender, etc., and most importantly searcing the web for a new recipe always seems to invigorate me.
I don't have to mention the aroma that fills the entire house when the cake is getting ready.
Though I would love to bake more often I try to limit myself to not more than twice a month as it is always me who end up gulping down major portion of the cake. My husband has become more watchful of what goes inside his tummy and my kid, after his first piece, simply gets distracted and forgets about it.
So whenever I enter the kitchen the cake starts yelling at me (especially if it has plenty of icing on it) to take just a small bite. Eventually after many small bites and when the cake has become considerably smaller in size, the kid suddenly remembers about it. By then the major chunk is happily resting inside my tummy. Ha...ha...ha...not my fault, he should have been more alert. Anyway he is not very fond of cakes with plenty of frosting. So he dosen't mind. Good for me.
Last week I made this cake. The recipe is from here. For the frosting I used the Italian Meringue Frosting that you can find here. Do I have to say that it was delicious? If not, I wouldn't have bothered to photograph it and post it here.
Try it and you will enjoy it.
Have a nice day.
