My mini tiered cake! It’s a fudgy chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting and a ganache drip.

I’m so mad at myself for not getting my layers perfect. UGGGGHHH. 😩

It’s still tasty. And the husband loved it.

Hey, everyone! So I was asked to help head up the JBLM branch of Free Cakes for Military Kids!

We will be helping active duty soldiers and their families. Basically we make birthday and celebration cakes for families who can’t afford it. Every kid deserves a cake on their birthday!!

I would really appreciate if you got the word out… Come like the JBLM page and a branch near you! We are currently operating at fifteen branches! Please also consider donating and volunteering. We could use bakers and cake decorators :)

I am so sick of people trying to haggle with me on the prices of my cakes.

This is my art. How disrespectful.

And I’m sorry fellow military spouses, but no… I can’t make you a three tier cake covered in fondant for $30. I already heavily discount my cakes and pastries. Do not insult me.

Go to Safeway if you want to be cheap.

So I started a Facebook page to sell more cakes and such. The parties I did this weekend went so well but I would really love to get more likes on my page and more business. If y’all could like me at facebook.com/welovecake and spread the word, I would be so grateful :)

Apricot Blueberry Cake

Ingredients

1 3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 ½ sticks unsalted butter, melted
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp almond extract
2 apricots, chopped
1 cup fresh blueberries

Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Butter and flour an 8-inch cake pan.

Scatter fruit on the bottom of the pan. I used 2 apricots and about a cup if blueberries, but depending on the size if your fruit you can use less or more.

Mix first five ingredients in a large bowl until combined. This will be thick batter!

Pour batter into the pan over fruit. Use a spatula to spread it evenly and give a few light taps to make sure everything is settled.

Bake for 40-45 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.

I let it cool for about ten minutes and then ran a knife around the edge and flipped it out into a plate. I like it presented upside down because you can see the fruit :) Don’t they look like beautiful little gems? A nice sprinkle of powdered sugar would be lovely on it, as well.

This cake is a little dense but moist and so, so soft. It was fantastic still hot out of the oven (I didn’t want to wait for it to cool!). I ate a slice for breakfast the next morning with tea. It’s not overly sweet so it was perfect for the morning.

You could definitely use different fruit in this. Blackberries and peaches are a good combo. Or a triple berry with raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries. The almond can also be replaced with vanilla or lemon. Have fun with it!

If you aren’t following my baking blog, you should! I post my latest work, projects from the bakery, recipes, and you can always ask questions and for advice :)
