Hubby's Birthday ~ Buttercup Golden Layer Cake with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting


Yesterday we celebrated my hubby’s 36th birthday and he was spoilt rotten with lots of cards, gifts, cake and love! I decided to bake him a 3 layer cake (a first for me) from my newly purchased Buttercup Bakes at Home book. It is a foolproof cake and wonderfully easy to bake and nothing smells as fragrant as sweet buttery vanilla sponge baking in the oven. The vanilla buttercream frosting is pure heaven and the recipe they use at Magnolia’s famous Manhattan’s bake shop. I finished it off with a sprinkling of chocolate sprinkles to add some extra birthday fun!





Hubby loved his cake as you can see from the pic above ;o)
