We just celebrated my daughter’s fourth birthday. I knew I wanted a birthday cake that was free from preservatives, high fructose corn syrup, and artificial food coloring so I had to come up with a plan! I decided to purchase these cake mixes from a brand called Immaculate. They were extremely easy to make. Just add butter, eggs, and milk! I made two sheet cakes so I could layer them!
Next was the frosting! I used a cream cheese frosting recipe from Pinterest, which I tweaked a bit. I added a cup of homemade whipped cream.
I purchased these natural food dyes for the icing colors!
Here is the finished product. This was the first time for baking/decorating a birthday cake and I didn’t do a practice run! I wasn’t 100% pleased, but my daughter was thrilled.
She kept asking me who made the cake. She couldn’t believe I did it and she said it was the “best cake ever”. My daughter was happy and that’s the only thing that mattered!
