|My version of a lemon bundt cake|
A few years ago, my sister introduced me to Nothing Bundt Cakes sells moist flavored bundt cakes with yummy cream cheese frosting. I am not a big cake eater, but I really enjoyed these cakes. I decided to try to make them myself.
So, the first thing I did was search the Internet for copycat recipes. I found this recipe and modified it to make a lemon cake. I used a box of instant lemon cake mix, sour cream, and sour cream for a moist base. I also omitted the chocolate chips.
My little lemon bundt cakes.
I just bought a spray can of Wilton's Bake Easy spray, so hopefully next time Mike will not have to clean really dirty pans. Mike doesn't seem to mind washing some of my baking dishes because sometimes likes to sample the batter and the misshapen and deformed treats.
I also made some cupcakes
I tried to dress them up with cream cheese frosting and a sprinkle top.
As you can see there is much room for improvement on the appearance of the cakes. The cakes turned out moist and delicious, so I think I've got the basic cake recipe down. My next step it make a firmer cream cheese frosting and pipe out a thicker frosting. I think the last step is to become focused on "pretty-fying" my creations. I think I do not have the patience to make things pretty and focus on the taste and flavor of food.
