Baked Brooklyn Birthday Cake

Yesterday was my grandma, Nawnee’s, 79th birthday. Nawnee is a pretty fabulous woman, so she required a pretty fabulous cake. I like to do either classic double chocolate or funfetti for birthdays, but she isn’t a huge chocolate fan, so I opted for funfetti. I’ve only ever made funfetti from the box (which is delicious), but my recently purchased cookbook, Baked Occasionshas a homemade funfetti cake right on its cover. The recipe is pretty straightforward, just more time consuming than using a box mix.

I can’t reprint the recipe here, but I encourage you to buy the cookbook; the recipes and introductions are funny, heartfelt, and mouth-watering good. Side note: if you’re wondering why this recipe has “Baked Brooklyn” in the title, it’s because the cookbook Baked Occasions is based on recipes that the authors, Matt and Renato, created for their bakery, Baked Brooklyn.
