Vanilla Cake just got an upgrade!
Vanilla is not plain. It’s not zero flavour, in fact in this cake, it’s the star. Vanilla beans are one of my favourite ingredients. If you’ve followed me for a while, you know I have another cake recipe, Vanilla Bean and Rosewater, which is seriously devine, if I do say so myself.
This time, I’ve skipped putting the beans into the cake, but I’ve definitely made up for it in the frosting!
Here in Australia it’s spring. Which means hot one day, windy the next. This weekend the sun is already starting to come out, which is going to be perfect because we have a couple of friends coming ’round to cheer me up.
Last week I had a car accident. I’m fine -ish. Nothing broken, but my car, and lots of bruises and whiplash instead. Someone just pulled out of a side street while I was going 45-50, and I had nowhere to go. It all happened so fast, that I barely managed to slow down much at all, so the impact was not fun.
I’ve been managing to get out and about the last day or so, mainly because if I have to lay on the couch for one more day I’ll scream! So an old friend of mine is popping over to cheer me up.
I whipped up this cake, and as you can see by the photos, I did have some help, thanks Hunny! I hope you all have a fab weekend, stay safe, and tell the people closest to you that you love them, you never do know what each day brings.
