Feeling domestic on this damp, rainy day here in Phoenix. I have been craving the flavors of fall. I decided that today would be a good day to bake a cake. I bought a boxed Betty Crocker Spice cake mix. I made the cake per the instructions. I am choosing to make a homemade cream cheese frosting to complement this flavor. I am making Martha Stewart’s cream cheese frosting that I found on the web.
What makes Martha’s so incredibly delicious is simply this… She uses an 8 oz. pkg. of cream cheese. 1 stick of butter (room temperature), only 1 cup of powdered sugar and a teaspoon of vanilla folded in at the end. This frosting is rich and luscious but not too sweet! Most frosting recipes call for 3 cups of powdered, confectioners sugar! I am in love with the subtle sweetness and creamy/spreadable consistency. The cream cheese flavor is still prevalent as well. I can’t wait until my cake is cool enough to frost it!
Goes the clock……………..
Goes the clock…
while the cake is cooling, here is my kind of spice of life… Escape -The Time Is Here. My original written while daydreaming … maybe I should write sappy romance novels? Sappy, spicy and full of big dreams, a romantic at heart.
Oh yes, back to my cake…
Try as I might, I’m no cake decorator! This will have to do, it tastes good for sure, I took a taste of the frosting off of my spreader when I was finished!
I like to decorate with candy corn and chocolate sprinkles. Happy prelude to fall!
