Cake Adventure Continues....

I'm in full practice mode for my sisters wedding which is in 6 months, 5 days...not that I"m counting.  I made my first cake with my brand new cake pans.

It was convenient that it was my best friend's birthday!  So I made her a cake!


This one is a full 2 cake mixes.  I baked it in the medium size pan, one mix at a time (each layer).  And because I don't have oodles of time, I did them earlier that week and froze them.

I used thick pudding to fill the cake, using just over a cup of milk instead of the 2 it called for.  Slight problem - filling 2 layers of frozen cake with pudding will freeze the pudding!!


I made a mint cream cheese icing which I think is my new favorite icing.  I used it back here for these St. Patrick's Day oreos and on these cupcakes.

Mint Cream Cheese Icing:
1/2 cup hard margarine
1 block cream cheese (8 oz.)
3-4 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp mint extract
few drops green food coloring

I iced the whole cake with it, and was pretty proud of how good it looked.  (although I know my high school home ec. teacher would be frowning at me for not doing a crumb layer first!)


I topped it off with some grated dark chocolate.  Stay tuned for how I later regretted that choice.

  4. It says 1/2 hard margarine, half what? Cup? Can you use butter instead?

  5. @cmann - that should be half a cup! Good catch. And yes, butter would work just as well, maybe better :)
