Its all about the cake stand.
My MIL often listens to my random rants about things that I am obsessed with. I wouldn’t blame her if she just tuned me out most of the time.
Luckily for me though, she listened extra good the day I went off on some random tirade about how I needed to own every cake stand ever made.
She found me this little gem at a garage sale.
I sorta like it.
And I knew I wanted to make a cake just for it.
So I laid in bed at night and tried to figure out a way to make giant flower petals to mimic the cake stand.
Cause people do that right? Lay in bed and think about cakes. That’s not abnormal right? Right?
And then I decided I wanted to make up my own white cake recipe.
Now whatever gave me the indication that I could just create my own recipe from scratch, I don’t know.
I did create a recipe. Its just tastes NOTHING like white cake. It does however taste exactly like sugar cookies.
But I happen to enjoy sugar cookies.
And then I found the perfect icing tip to make the flower petals for my cake.
It was a good day in my kitchen.
(can you tell its raining?)
Yes its got shortening in it. No I would not substitute butter.
Just try it. Once. Then you can go back to butter. Trust me, I always go back to butter. And no, I am not just talking about frosting anymore.
I had SO much fun making this cake I am going to make it again just so I can show you how. That should be coming soon!
