Capture What Counts Photography

#4/52 Yummy!

Today is the hub’s birthday, and I made my first ever cake from scratch for him.  Thank you to my sister-friends Amanda, Kim and Kistina for the support (this was quite traumatic for me LOL!  I love to cook but have never baked much of anything unless it was from Toll House or Betty Crocker.)  It turned out amazing!  I want to eat this icing every day.  Forever.  Seriously.

    • Hehe there wasn’t quite enough icing in the middle. 🙂

      • And that is not because I ate a giant spoonful of it . Out of the bowl. Before the cake was frosted. Nope.

  12. Kim, the recipe comes from Gina and Pat Neely’s cookbook, not sure the name, but it’s their new one and I know the word Celebrations is in it. A friend of mine made it and she sent me the recipe.

  14. Good job, great pic! From-scratch baking is my kryptonite. I try, but I can’t beat a Betty Crocker mix! LOL

    • I was pretty nervous but it came out good. Thanks for visiting and commenting 🙂

  15. YUM!! Chocolate cake with chocolate frosting…. my favorite!!! Hey, did you know that MY birthday is coming up? 😉
    I don’t bake cakes from scratch, but at least Betty Crocker and Pillsbury (and whatever friends they have 😉 ) beat store bought cakes any day 🙂

    Happy Birthday to your hubby!

    • LOL Michaela. How about if I give you the recipe? 🙂

      January 30, 2012 at 7:09 PM

  16. Oh, does that look good! My first scratch cake was a disaster. 🙂

    January 30, 2012 at 9:16 AM

    • Oh no! This one was a little crumbly, but didn’t taste dry. Glad I took it out at the lesser time though.

      January 30, 2012 at 7:09 PM

  17. Happy Birthday to him.
    and I’m impressed that you actually DID do it and made the cake from scratch.. NICE!!!

    Dude – that looks amazing and you know I am not much a cake eater. If you end up bringing any of it into to work, see me first 🙂 Congrats on your first homemade cake!!

  19. Looks like it would not have lasted long – lucky you took a great photo of it before it disappeared 🙂

    January 30, 2012 at 5:19 PM

    • Haha He has been munching on it pretty good. Thank you for visiting and commenting!

  20. Yummmm, that looks very tasty! Hope he had a great birthday. 😀

  21. Save me a piece please, I’m booking a flight right now.

  22. I don’t see the recipe! Looks wonderful. I see you’re doing the Project 52 also. I didn’t know how to title mine with an intro. I probably should go back and retitle now that I know. Wonderful image, we were both thinking of chocolate this week. Is it going to be one of those years again. LOL

    January 31, 2012 at 10:45 PM

  23. Delish! Now I got to go find me some chocolate.

  24. The frosting does look lip-smacking! Don’t think I’d have had enough left after tasting to frost the cake. You’ve made it look very inviting!
