Prom Cake

So for my prom last week, I decided to make a cake for the party we had afterwards at one of my friends house. The cake was excellent, a chocolate butter cake, but the buttercream frosting was so light, that it didn’t really taste like buttercream anymore, more like fluff. Both recipes were from The Cake Bible, by Rose Birnbaum, but I think that in the future, I’m going to stick to the more traditional buttercream frosting I usually make. My dad said that this was one of the best cakes I’ve ever made, and he is a harsh critic.

I forgot to take a photo before it was cut, but as you can see, I went a little wild with the frosting and food coloring.


Some people decided to dig in right from the plate.
