As promised, friends: CAKE!
I made this “Aunt Sassy Cake” for a birthday party at work!
And ooh, it’s a good one. The cake is moist and fluffy and delicate, the frosting is crazy: a bit of depth and sweetness from the honey, but not teeth-achingly-sweet by any means.
(Forgive the messy cut–it was 100 degrees out that day and it’s honestly a wonder the thing made it from my apartment to work!)
And I must admit, dear readers, I spent nearly twenty minutes typing up and adapting the below recipe. Phew. Almost as exhausting as baking the cake itself.
So I hope you’ll allow me to keep this post short and sweet and leave you with simply a bunch of pretty pictures of the cupcakes this recipe also made. Sound good? I thought so.
This cake, and bonus cupcakes, are worth the effort. Give it a try!
