  • Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt and add one third to butter mixture and beat. Add one third of the milk and beat on low speed. Continue alternately adding the ingredients in the same manner ending with the last third of the flour mixture. Pour the batter in the prepared pan.
  • Bake for 55-60 minutes till springy to the touch and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

    I really think you need to have your own show and I am NOT just saying that. Or at least your own cake-making business.

    That sounds like so much fun to do! As usual, your finished cake looks lovely and playful--perfect for a wedding. I have made wedding cakes for friends. For some reason, they all requested carrot cake. I didn't really know how to construct and support a multi-layered cake, so there were cake-slides along the way.

    I have worked with fondant and gum paste also. Not hard if you have patience. You did a great job as usual. Don't know if you saw my avitar of my gum paste and fondant cake I had on about a week ago? Making gum paste or fondant flowers is like a type of artwork in my opinion. Almost to pretty to eat!
