Birthday Cake


This week we celebrated the boyfriend's birthday with a deliciously healthy dinner (made by him) and a not-so-healthy golden layer cake with chocolate buttercream frosting (made by moi). This was my first attempt at baking a cake completely from scratch, and I have to say it was a pretty decent initial effort. Although I found a couple things I could have done differently--there's always room for improvement, after all--the birthday boy loved it. And really, that's all that matters.
