Annie's Cake I am regretting that
I posted yesterday about the frosting. 

How embarrassing! 
Now I have to show you the cake! 
Please keep in mind that I am just a mom...
...a basketcase mom...
...who is terrible at baking.
It's true. 
ANYONE who knows me would agree.

Trust me, for me this is good :)

The inside baked beautifully!

Happy little cake isn't it?

Here is my fave bakery frosting recipe:

1C powdered sugar
1 unbeaten egg white
1/2 C vegetable shortening
2 tbsp cake flour
2 tbsp milk
Almond flavoring to preference

Beat together
& add 1 more C powdered sugar

It tastes soooo good!

Time to decorate the deck for
Annie's little cousins party.
