Happy Thursday! It's almost the weekend again, can you believe it?
So, Bryan turned the big 2-5 last week and we celebrated with lots of presents and my first go at making homemade birthday cake.
I have to say, it was pretty freakin' good. Like good enough that it's already all gone, and there are only two people that live in our house :). (In my defense, I AM eating for two!)
Normally I just make the boxed cake mix, but I really wanted to mark something off of my constantly growing recipe board on Pinterest. I've probably pinned about 400 recipes and have only made 6....can I get an amen, or am I the only one who does that?
I went with this recipe. I won't copy and paste the original since you can just click on the link if you want to see it, but I will say that if you don't have any self-rising flour handy (like me) you can substitute all-purpose flour and add 1.5 tsp baking powder and .5 tsp salt for every cup of flour mixed in and it works just great! Enjoy!
Now, on to my question: Can someone PLEASE give me some pointers on how the heck to get cake out of a cake pan in one piece? Every single layer of this cake left about half of itself in the pan when I was trying to get it out. Ugh. It was a tasty cake, but not a pretty one.
I tried everything I know--cooking spray, butter, flour, shaking, patting....everything. I even put wax paper on the bottom of the last one and while it worked much better than using nothing at all, it still came out in several pieces. Help, please! Thanks in advance :).
Have any of you tried any Pinterest recipes that turned out to be amazing?? Please share them if you have!
Have a great day!
