This is a first for me. An actual dslr photo of one of my kid’s birthday cakes. Normally its a few iphone snaps and a share on instagram. The only cakes I have ever blogged for my kids were their 1st birthday cakes years ago on my old blog. I realized I needed to share my go-to buttercream recipe so why not share with this cake. Swiss Meringue buttercream sounds so much harder than it is, but its really so easy and I personally think its a gazillion times better than powdered sugar buttercreams. Not cloyingly sweet at all.
My husband and I make each other’s cakes for our birthdays and always have since before we were married. He always makes me pineapple upside down cake and I make him angel food cake. My kids on the other hand have had a different cake each year so far, since they have yet to find one cake and stick with it ( finicky kids I tell you) and when my now 6 year old told me she wanted just a chocolate cake with my yummy vanilla buttercream I knew I wanted to do more than just that. It had to be fun!
Can’t believe my kid is 6 already. HOW did this happen? I have got to stop blinking as much as I do. Time is flying by.
