Birthday Cake

I wanted to bake a special Birthday Cake for my best friend. She is most generous friend anybody could ask for. Tomorrow, her family and friends are throwing her a surprise birthday party and I am honored to be tasked to bake her the birthday cake. This is a 10 inch double layer cake, it is quite a big cake.

I doubled the recipe. This is not a light cake in terms of frosting. New design on the decorations, though it looks simple with just a crumb coating, believe me the frosting is much thicker coating (but not overwhelming) than any of my previous cakes.

I have used the Home and Garden recipe with lots of modifications.

3/4 unsweetened coconut milk
1/2 light sour cream
3 eggs

3 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup crisco blended butter
1/2 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup strawberry preserves.

Bake at 350 degree for 5 mins
Continue to bake at 325 degree for another 40 mins.

10 inch cake pan
Lined bottom of pan with parchment paper
Grease around side of pan with margarine.

Cake is done when tooth pick comes out clean.
Let cake cool down for 10 mins, turn cake onto cake stand.

Frosting with buttercream frosting.
