Cherry Vanilla Cake by maytel Cherry Vanilla Cake by maytel

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today is the birthday of three of my most important people. It is my father's birthday, my husband's birthday and my oldest friend's birthday. Over the course of the year, at every birthday my father said "you never made me a cake like that!". With much guilt motivation I decided to make the perfect cake for my father - A cherry cake. He is mad about cherries, so that cake should be the perfect one for him.

The only problem is that my husband hates baked cherries. So yesterday, while trying to be the best Mom that I can be, I made two different cakes. A chocolate cake and this one. You should've seen my kitchen when I put down my son to bed yesterday, it looked like a food fight tournament had been held there.

I must admit that I'm not the biggest fan of cherries either so I did not taste the batter nor the filling. Hopefully this will turn out ok. The batter is cherry vanilla, the filling is a cherry butter cream and the frosting is a vanilla bean Swiss butter cream.

I admit I don't like the taste of cherries either, but it looks so beautiful!!! The contrast of colors is amazing, and you're so amazing that I'm sure it tasted great!

You're such a nice daughter/wife/mother for making two cakes and taking care of Loïc :stare:

It was surprising because Julien actually enjoyed it! (he tried it after everyone raved about how good it was).

I'm learning to juggle things :)

You and :icontalty: should do a collab - you make real cakes and then she replicates them in polymer clay. And then I sit here and drool over both of them, lol! I love the simple composition of this pic. I want to replicate it in colored pencil!

I can imagine the state of your kitchen. :laughing: Probably looks a bit like mine right now.

The cake looks absolutely gorgeous. That's a lot of birthdays at once!

It was a horrible sight indeed :(
November is baby popping time! I guess February is baby making time? maybe Cupid has something to do with it.
