peach cake

Let me first preface this post by exclaiming vehemently that I AM NOT A GREAT CAKE MAKER!!! Furthermore, I am NOT A GREAT CAKE DECORATOR EITHER! So there, I got that out. Now you will understand why the cake I made for Joe looked like a nursery school student slathered frosting all over it with their fingers! I try though, I have this thing about store bought cakes...while they may look all put together and stuff, I feel a homemade cake is so much more meaningful! I hope to get better at it!!!  The family and I went out to pick peaches one afternoon, which was lots and lots of fun, and since Joe's birthday rolled around the same time and he loves peaches, I decided to make him a peach cake. Well, actually I decided to make him peach cupcakes with this recipe found here!  I absolutely love the blog the recipe comes from, it is truly a favorite. Anyhow, when I made a  batch of the cupcakes, I decided to bake off the rest of the batter in this super cute, teeny, tiny little cake pan I bought for Hazel's first birthday cake.  I had planned to deviate from the cupcake recipe, and make a marscarpone frosting, which I found...here. While, I do indeed need a cake decorating lesson, I thought I'd share because the cake was super delicious!!!!  Joe was happy!!! In the future, perhaps I will make the cake ahead of time, so that I may have time to decorate it without a crying 6 month old, and fighting 3 and 5 year olds (and a hot and humid house, an enemy of frosting...so I've discovered) to contend with...perhaps!!!!
