Scripture to Live By:
For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
The earth is the Lord‘s and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein,
In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses,according to the riches of his grace, and have not obeyed the voice of the Lord our God by walking in his laws, which he set before us by his servants the prophets.
Cake Decorating Post:
I love the beauty of this season and some of the recipes I make during this season. I so enjoy Hoot Owl Peanut Butter Cookies. I also enjoy this Autumn Party Mix, So when this when I was asked to make an Autumn Birthday Cake I was thrilled.
I made this cake for was a mother of a 59 year old son. She wanted me to make the cake yellow, but she wanted coconut flavoring added to both in the cake and the frosting. I was told by several people that the cake was delicious. One man said it was the best he had eaten. I am so glad that they liked it.
If you would like to make this cake, you will need the follow: (this makes a 2 layer 12″ round cake, If you would like to make an 8 or 9 inch cut the ingredients to one third of what is here)
3 yellow cake mix
1 cup oil
3 cup of water
3 teaspoon of coconut flavoring
First, grease and flour two 12 ” round cake pans.
Next, mix up the cake mix by following the directions on the box. For a 12 inch round cake, I use 3 cake mixes, Putting one and one-half cake mixes in each pan.
Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown, and the top is firm when patted.
Remove from oven and let cool for approximately five minutes in pans. then cut the top of the cake using the rim of the cake pan as your guide. (This levels the cake) Then remove from pan by flipping the cake upside down onto a 14″ cake board. Let cool completely.
While cake is cooling, make up frosting recipe. For this cake I make up a double recipe. The following is what you will need for a double batch of frosting.
2 cups of margarine
2 cups of Crisco
8 cups of powdered sugar
2/3 cups of evaporated milk
2 teaspoons of vanilla
2 teaspoons of coconut flavoring
Put in large mixing bowl and beat for approximately 10 minutes.
Frost the bottom layer. Put the top layer on and frost sides and top as shown below.
Make the colors up that you want to use to make your flowers and leaves. I used fall colors to decorate this cake. Making a mum type flower.
For these flowers I used tip number 87 and for the leaves I used tip 382.
For the writing use tip 4.
I put dots of brown around the border at the bottom to tie in the brown on the cake.
I enjoy making this Autumn Cake for any occasion. Hope you like it.
