Sprinkles are like edible glitter to me, they make everything so cute and sparkly. So naturally when I walk past them at any store I can’t help but stop, stare and usually add several to my cart. Don’t they just make you smile? While at Home Goods the other day I picked up a few bottles of them in wonderful pastel or what I like to say Spring-y colors! Sugar on Top is the brand and I just adore the lovely glass bottles that they put them in. I’m also a published paper crafter so when the jars are empty guess what I use them for? YES, GLITTER!!! and/or sequins which is another obsession of mine. In fact if you like paper crafts check out my group on Facebook called Papercrafters Cafe, it is for crafting whether it be cakes, knitting, paper crafting (primarily) or beading we would love to have you there.

This weekend I decided to try a new white cake recipe from one of my most beloved cookbooks. Well lets just say that I was not impressed nor where my family members. The cake looked pretty with the rose top but I found the recipe to be flat. It’s all about experimenting and trying new things otherwise how would we know what we like and dislike? I urge you to go and do the same pick a recipe whether its for a cake or a special dessert and give it a try. Just PLEASE do not try it for a big event without having done a trial run I would hate for you to be disappointed like we were. Here is our white on white rose cake
Isn’t “she” pretty? This week we will be trying out new flavors in our test kitchen. We want to hear from you. What are your favorite fall flavors? Are you tired of everything pumpkin this time of the year? Let’s break the rules and create our own special Tasty treat!
Have a Tasty Monday everyone
The temps are dropping again so what’s a girl to do? Bake a Happy Day Cake! What is a happy day cake you ask, well its chock full of wonderful blueberries. I had a large bag of these lil gems tucked away in the freezer from the end of summer and today they turned into happy day cake. I got this recipe years ago, like 20+, from a friend and when my grandmother would visit she would always request this; or when I went to visit her! So today i”m going to share the recipe with you folks and if you bake one up be sure to comment and/or email us some pictures of yours.
Happy Day Cake Recipe
4.5 cups flour ** 3 cups of sugar ** 2 teaspoons salt ** 5 teaspoons baking powder ** 1 cup of oil such as vegetable ** 2 cups of milk ** 2 teaspoons of vanilla ( I only use pure vanilla extract) ** 2 cups of blueberries or more if you want a lot. I freeze my blueberries first and then I gently fold them into the batter so my whole cake does not turn blue. ** 4 eggs
Pre-heat your oven to 350
I use a kitchen aid mixer and I put all the dry ingredients into the bowl first, using the flat paddle attachment I turn it on low and mix up all the dry items to evenly distribute them. Then with the mixer still on low I add the wet ingredients one by one until thoroughly mixed.
I use a spray such as Bakers Joy for my pans but you can certainly use butter and flour if you like. I also like to line my pan with parchment paper .Grease a 9 x 13″ pan and pour your batter into the pan. I like to tap the pan on the counter a few times to get the cake settled and it also helps with air bubbles. Place in your pre-heated oven and cook until your toothpick or skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean. This should take at least 90 minutes but please start checking yours after it has been in the oven for one hour. My cake took close to 2 hours. WOW you say? yup, its a long time but slow and steady wins the race and the payoff is AWESOME. Cooking times also vary depending on the pan used ex: shiny metals or dark metal pans. Dark metal pans tend to cook faster and more often than not require a bit lower cooking temp so I try and avoid those.
Side note: you could also use Lemon extract and make this as a delicious lemon-y blueberry cake now THAT is also DELICIOUS!!
Let your cake cool (hopefully you can keep everyone out of it long enough to cool it!) and serve
This is what the batter will look like after you have folded in your frozen blueberries
Below is what your yummy cake will look like inside when its done. My blueberries were quite large and wanted to sink to the bottom as you can see.
