Tried my hand with the white cake again. This time I used the tried and true Better Homes and Gardens cookbook that I’ve had for 40 years.
The cake could stand alone, without frosting or filling. That is the real test for cake. I would have preferred a bit more moistness so will increase shortening from three quarters cup to a full cup next time. Also, I will cream the shortening and sugar a bit longer.
These cupcakes currently reside in the freezer. Our grandchildren will be here in a few days and it will be Judah’s second birthday so cake will be required for a small celebration.
