Sometimes the best way to say 'Thank You!' is with a cake.
For this cake I followed the same basic recipe as found here. This time I used raspberry flavour jam. As the icing on the birthday cake was too milky, and never really set properly here I used a simple buttercream frosting, directions as follows.
- One 350g of instant icing sugar
- About 100g of butter
- About 20-30ml hot water, depending on the consistency you wish
- One teaspoon vanilla essence
I used miniature chocolate chips to spell out the message, a much easier task than piping! Simple, yet effective!
I loved this cake, it almost hurt to give it away! But the recipients were delighted and that made the cake all the sweeter!
Bake a cake for somebody who you appreciate this weekend, it really will give you a dose of the warm and fuzzies!
