This has to be the prettiest Vanilla Pudding Cake I think I ever made. This cake recipe is three layers of pudding, making it into a soft cake, and a layer of chocolate frosting that is sweet and decadent.
So, here is the thing. I am a good baker. Like, pretty darn awesome if I must say so myself. Although I am a pretty good baker, I am not a good cake decorator…at all. I have never lied or mislead any of you to think other wise. In fact, most of my cakes are made in a bundt pan. I don’t have to worry about it. All I have to do is add a glaze or spread the frosting on top and BOOM! Easy, peasy, beautiful cover girl. Every now and then when I decide to challenge myself, I will make a layer cake and try to do something special to make it look professional. After a while, I decided to accept my truth as a cake decorator and became okay with the fact that cake decorating is just not my thing. I can make a cake taste amazing and look decent but you will never unless I’m in an exceptional mood, I mean never see fondant flowers, stencils used to make decorations onto a cake, or some awesome sculpture made out of…I don’t know…sugar on my blog. I am here to inspire you to get in the kitchen and give it your best shot and to reshape the idea that enjoying cooking is more domestic and subservient, rather than sexy. But hunny, I don’t have that kind of time to spend countless hours making stuff look pretty. I make things look good enough to make you want to eat and Pin on Pinterest to share with others and that is about all.
