For my birthday this yr, I splurged on a flowery cake from a flowery bakery. It was tall and grand and exquisite. However the bizarre factor was…
My good friend Ziva — of Chipwiches fame — additionally introduced over a grocery retailer sheet cake and guess which one was simply essentially the most scrumptious? Hers. It was easy and excellent and all the children and adults dove in for seconds.
Then, this week, in a traditional case of Baader Meinhof, I noticed a New York Instances article proclaiming “Sheet Muffins Are the Finest Muffins.” The frosting-to-cake ration is best on sheet truffles, the author argued, and “not solely are they simpler to bake — no annoying trimming or crumb coatings required — however in addition they feed a crowd and journey nicely.”
Bought! Now I wish to strive making some with the boys. Smitten Kitchen has three that look scrumptious — chocolate, confetti, and a sheet cake model of the strawberry cake that modified our lives a number of years in the past.
Do you might have any sheet cake recipes you like? Or sturdy cake opinions? I’d love to listen to…
P.S. A slice-and-bake cookies style take a look at, an apple pound cake, and what birthday cake do you want?
