Yesterday afternoon we went shopping, and got some supplies for cooking. Flour, sugar, and all the rest of the good stuff. I’ve been wanting to make this cake for a while, well at least since we’ve gotten this book 😉 So yesterday I made it. And without a mixer, yes I used my whirewisk and a spatula. It was very tiring, but it got done, which is what I wanted. I added nearly everything, and then it was finally time to add the coloring. We just bought a 1 oz bottle of red food dye, it cost more than I would have expected, but my wonderful parents said it was alright. I put the dye and cocoa together, which is what your suppose to do. It looked wonderful. I added it to the cake mix, and that made it beautiful. It started to turn pink and then a dark red. Wow, it was amazing. I sprayed two pie plates and put the cake into it, and put it in the oven. And then I started to make the cheese cake frosting, only thing is we didn’t have enough cream cheese. NOT COOL. I had to wait until after church to get some, we could have gone before but my mom was doing things, and my dad had to prepare a lesson for that night. So I tried waiting patiently, it didn’t work out so well. Thats basically all I could think about, though I did get some things out of the lesson. We went to the store and bought some, and then had to turn around and go buy a mixer. I did not want to mix together by hand butter and cream cheese. I have already had enough of mixing things with my hands, such as sugar and shortening. It feels disgusting, and I dont like shortening as it is. My best friend makes his cookies with crisco, and I just dont see how he touches it. And now I do. I use to make fun of him for using it, but he doesnt need to know that I do the same thing now. So we got the mixer, brought it home and used it. It worked really well, and that meant I didn’t have to touch it. I added everything else and mixed some more, and it smelled and tasted super good. I frosted the double layered cake, and it looked……..alright. It was a little bit over done, but alright at that. I’m sure I’ll be practicing more on this recipe.
Have a wonderful weekend
And enjoy the food you eat
