Birthday cake

Some time ago, Carol from WAFT by Carol posted a recipe for a Red velvet cake which I found totally interesting. Here is a link to the recipe.

So, I decided to make it for my birthday and here are the pictures (Carol’s looks much better but hey, this was the first time for me):

As you can tell, I’m still not perfect at frosting the cake. 🙂 To put it mildly.

But it looked ok inside and everyone wanted a piece (that was good to hear).

Some guests wanted a second piece as well (yay for me!) so in the end there wasn’t really much left.
Although you might not think it by looking at the photos, the cake really tastes wonderful. And I can’t wait to do it again in the near future.

P.S. Carol was very helpful – I don’t do much baking, so I peppered her with questions. 🙂 Thanks!

    Dear Ines,Sorry I'm late to the party, but here's hoping you had a wonderful birthday (your cake looks like the very yummy real deal, much better than the store-bought, perfectly frosted kind)! Wishing you all the best in the year ahead.

    Suzanne, thank you so much for the nice words. 🙂 I had one of the greatest birthdays because this year all my birthday related happenings were filled with laughter and good-will (and home-made cake). 🙂
