Oops, I forgot my blogs birthday.

Oops, as you can see from this post's title, I seem to have forgotten my blog's birthday. As of April 2, this blog turned one. I'm sorry blog, will you ever forgive me? What if I made you a cake? And not just any cake, but a three layer neapolitan cake with strawberry buttercream? All right, you say? Great!

This cake was spectacular, and a definite! Three layers of moist cake encased in smooth strawberry butter cream. Yum! Who would say no? Instead of sandwiching the layers with buttercream, I stacked each layer and then covered the entire cake. My family is not a frosting fan (I never said I wasn't!), so the small amount of ice was just enough for them. The recipe comes from sweetapolita's blog, and just be warned that if you make all the recipes for the cake without halving them, you'll end up with two about four inch tall cakes! I would double the frosting recipe or half the cake batter recipes if you want a good amount of frosting between the layers. Enjoy!

P.S. The Sweetest Kitchen Mystery Box Cupcake Challenge entries are up! Don't forget to vote! (Maybe for something lemony?) :)







For the recipe, check out sweetapolita's blog. Recently she made an inside out neapolitan cake!
