One of my very good friends is an alumnae and big fan of KU basektball! So when we all got together to watch them play (and win!) their semifinal game on Saturday I made a red velvet double layer round cake. It has been awhile since I have made a good ol' fashined round cake and let me tell you it showed! it got stuck in the pan and then I tried to put it back together with some glue (aka cream cheese frosting). While it was slanted it still tasted good! I really need to work on the basic cake! Good Luck to KU on Monday!
To do the KU and the design I changed a recipe recipe and it worked out well! I halved the recipe below:
(Me modified from: allrecipes)
1 cup butter
4 cups confectioners' sugar
4 tablespoons milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Beat on low speed of electric mixer until well blended and very smooth.
