Today at my daughter's office they celebrated three birthdays. In honor of their birthdays she made one of our favorites, the yellow cake from Magnolia Bakery in New York City. It has a great crumb and their frosting is light and creamy. You got to love their cookbook! Earlier this year another one of my daughters and her friend traveled to New York and stopped by the bakery before they came home and brought me home a box of cup cakes (now that is love). This afternoon I got the last piece of cake from the birthday celebrations at the office and every bite was delicious. If you have a celebration coming up in your life you might want to try this cake out, just be sure to save a piece for yourself.
If you can't purchase self rising flour, or if you'd rather make your own like I do,
here is my recipe;
6 cups of flour
