I was bored today and decided to challenge myself with a baking project. Although this recipe isn't exactly challenging, to me, completing [successfully] any sort of baking recipe, is a challenge.
I have Baking A.D.D. - I don't usually have the patience to wait for dough to rise, or things like that....but today I was feeling saucy and decided why not!
So with that I came up with a great flavor combo - Vanilla Cake, with a Rose Buttercream Frosting & Coconut Flakes. Also, In between the layers of cake, I put a thin layer of strawberry preserves.
The icing in and of itself was a great accomplishment - and the cake is perfectly moist and delicious!
Moist Vanilla Cake perfect to add any flavor topping to!
A floral scented buttercream frosting - great on vanilla cake
As I said before, in between my 2 layers of cake, I did a little strawberry preserves, but you can just do buttercream in there. I iced the outside of the cake in it's entirety and then covered the sides with Sweetened Coconut Flakes.
So elegant - I feel like it should be for a bridal or baby shower!
