My simple design birthday cake for Edda. I just stick to something simple because on that day itself I made a few other cakes, kuih and a lot of chopping and slicing for the next day. No energy left to decorate something fanciful.
The slice view of the cake. I love the icing for this cake so decided to share it here and for my own record. I memorized the recipe while watching the American Test Kitchen T.V. show.
Recipe from American Test Kitchen:
3 sticks of unsalted butter, soften (1 stick=113 g)
1- 16oz/1lb icing sugar a.k.a confectioner sugar/powder sugar
1 Tbsp. milk
1 Tbsp. pure vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
Put all in a bowl and beat until soft and fluffy. Frost the cake as desired. If too soft, put in the refrigerator for 30 minutes before frosting again.
