207: Let the birthday preparations begin

Photobucket

I decided to make Aidan's birthday cake from scratch. I've made cakes before, but mixes are so easy. However, I'm trying to use as little processed food as possible these days, so mixes are definitely out. Today I got the cake baked and into the freezer. I'm grateful for getting something checked off my very long list.

Good for you. I bet it was wonderful!!

(I'm wondering if anyone will bring up bleached flour.)

You did!

It was the only kind of cake flour the store had. I don't even know what the difference is between cake, all purpose, bread and pastry flour. Something about protein content, I think.

There is definitely a difference, glad you chose the right flour for a special birthday cake!
