Thursday Thirteen #76 Mmmm...Cake Edition

Chocolate Cake

Greetings, Kittens!

I ventured out for errands and came back home intent on using the last of my excess energy to bake a cinnamon swirl cake with lemon cream cheese frosting. I was all set and then it turned out that I didn't have enough powdered sugar to make the frosting, (yes, I make my own frosting because it's the only way I'll eat it), so the cake had to wait. It's been on my mind all night and as a result you get to visually indulge in yummy images of 13 Cakes.

Factoid: The term cupcake did not originally mean the miniature delights we think of now. It was used to distinguish the difference between a cake whose ingredients were measured out with measuring cups and one whose ingredients were measured out by weight. Most modern cakes are cupcakes. *grin*

Enjoy.

I grew up with homemade frosting and glazes which was great, but it made me very picky when dealing with store bought cakes and those made by other people. Eventually I defaulted to pound cakes and my birthday cakes came with very specific instructions on using half the sugar that would go for others. I like being able to taste the cake and find the harmony between them. Something lost the moment you get to the over sugared concoctions called frostin on store shelves.

I guess I have an opinion, huh? *grin*
