And another one bites the dust…..really it is just another day in the life of me. Waking up early to enjoy coffee, search the net a few minutes then a easy 3 mile run. Only to come home to sweet birthday wishes, hugs and kisses from my children and husband. I enjoyed morning t-ball and softball, lunch with my family, swimming, short nap, made supper, then off to a town team baseball game. All in all it was the birthday for me.
I always make birthday cakes or cupcakes for friends and family so my birthday is no exception. Since my birthday is in the heat of summer I like to keep the cake light even though I LOVE chocolate and peanut butter. I will have to celebrate my half birthday in January to have that cake. So this year I choose my favorite cupcakes, HOMEMADE FUNFETTI CUPCAKES, made into a square layered cake.
I have never used my 8 x 8 inch square pan so I did some work on google and found to to be similar volume as your standard 9 inch round baking pan. This is a helpful link to different Pan sizes and an 8 x 8 square pan similar to mine.
This cake is fun and delicious. A wonderful vanilla base with sweet whipped vanilla buttercream frosting and sprinkles for added fun.
