I discovered Rosie’s Sweetapolita baking website and fell in love with her strawberry layer cake recipe. The color is beautiful and the cake so fragrant. For the birthday cake that I made, I used Sweetapolita’s fancy Pastel Swirl frosting technique.
Having taken birthday treats to various restaurants before and not having an issue, it didn’t occur to me… but for this dual-birthday celebration at a local restaurant, we were told a cake cutting fee per person would be charged! We were already there though, and they cut the cake and served it for us.
Since I ended up with a little extra batter, I made some mini cupcakes… love these little treasures, the colors, and white non-pareil sprinkles. 🙂
