Happy Birthday To Me!

Yep, it’s my birthday, today as a matter of fact. And seeing as my husband doesn’t know how to bake, I made my own birthday cake.

The recipe that I used for the cake is from BettyR at ChefTalk … thanks Betty, this is the easiest scratch cake I’ve ever made. I made two layers rather than three, as called for in this recipe and then a dozen cupcakes to share with neighbors.

For the frosting, I had a dozen egg whites (I only used 6 egg whites) in the deep freeze that were leftover from making Meyer Lemon Curd awhiles back. So I went looking for a recipe for Chocolate Italian Meringue Butter Cream that I have wanted to try my hand at. What I found even came with a video, very helpful, Mahalo (thanks) Dede Wilson at Bakepedia.

Hauoli la hanau, Happy Birthday to me!
