The year before belonged to this brown sugar, caramel beauty. It was moist and sweet, and tasted deliciously old-fashioned-like something right out of your grandmother's kitchen! Then there was this one. My God, it was rich. It's called Holy Cow cake. It's a bit of a shortcut cake as the recipe starts with a cake mix. It was positively sinful. I swear, just looking at the ingredients for this cake is enough to make your pants fit tighter! And, it's definitely not much to look at, but was it ever scrumptious! His birthday's coming up soon, and I think I'll give this little lovely a go. *via epicurious, sweet magnolias farm, a cat in my lap, bakerella
What about you? When it comes to birthdays, do you like to bake from scratch, or perhaps from a box? Or do you prefer the ease and convenience of a purchased bakery cake instead?
