Today is the fifth birthday of The Cake Slice Bakers group. This is my third month baking with them and I feel like I’ve been with them since day one. Baking something for our anniversary was our little lagniappe (a little something extra) and lots of fun to do. We didn’t have a particular theme or item that was required this month so we are free-styling. My contribution to our photo album is a Butter Pecan Cake with Chocolate Frosting. In addition to it being a part of The Cake Slice Bakers birthday I gave it away to my sister-in-law who has had more than her fair share of hospital visits this year.
After baking the layers I sliced off the domed tops and tasted a piece. This isn’t a cake made from scratch but it is very moist and there is no artificial after taste characteristic of some boxed mixes.
Happy 5th Birthday CSB and here’s to many more!!
