By Saturday night I was in panic! Have to choose one, with the ingredients already in my pantry, of course, don't have the time to go to supermarket to buy ingredients, JUST ONE! How hard could that be ?!?
On my last attempt I brought out the Dorie's heft book Baking From My Home to Yours. There I saw Party Cake hmmmm.......intriguing it looks so WHITE! Seems like easy to do and had tons of egg whites stashed away in the freezer. FINALLY! I have CHOSEN! Gosh Darn it! I finally have chosen! I wanted to start making it as soon as possible but my conscience is telling me no! calm down first you'll mess it up with all that adrenaline pumping!
I started my baking Sunday after lunch when I'm fed and satisfied :) Its actually a very easy and fast recipe, so it was a breeze to make. As I was making it still wondering how the heck would I get that white cake look! And was a bit concerned with the fact that the batter is so thin! its the thinnest batter that I have ever made, so even if the recipe said 30 minutes, by 20 minutes I was already checking for doneness. I was even quite surprise to see that the cake turn out so pale, even though I know its suppose to be like that duh! My problem only came when, one of may cake layer turns out crooked! Needless to say instead of a 4 layer cake it turned into a 3 layer cake. The frosting is easy to do as well, though my right arm would protest with all that whisking it did :) Love doing the assembly part and decorating part, because it means I'm actually about to finished and get to eat it later!
We celebrated my mom's birthday last night, we ate at Emerald Garden, one of her favorite Chinese restaurant for their fabulous seafood. Didn't get to bring the cake because it was pouring outside. Darn ..... hey at least I had a fabulous time doing it! Happy Birthday Ma!
Good news is mom LOVE it! Of course when she asked me how much butter it took to bake the cake didn't say a word ;) I would definitely make this cake again!
