COME BACK SCHOOL - Easy cakes idea!
Updated: Jan 11
You won’t believe how easy it is to turn one of the most common school supplies into a cake… this Cake is beyond fun, from the inside out!
Butter cakes, such as pounds cakes and most diaper cakes, get their soft, fine texture and moistness called a crumb by first creaming together fat and sugar, adding the eggs and slowly add the dry ingredients in the mixture alternately with a liquid, such as milk or buttermilk.
Writing on cakes can be daunting, but it becomes easier with practice. Use a small piece of round tubing and practice on parchment before going for the real thing, applying pressure as you go. Any practice frosting can be easily scraped off the parchment and reused.
You can reuse any crumby glaze small bowl while applying the crumb layer. Use a bench scraper to smooth the edges and place the cake in the freezer for a few minutes before continuing on the final layer.
I really enjoyed making this cake just as much as I am sitting here right now and writing down these instructions on how to make it for you. I hope you find these instructions easy to follow and would give you the inspiration to make a book cake at your next event.
