I am very happy to share with you this special moment.
Last Monday we celebrated the birthday of our baby, for us is still a baby and already has 4 years.
It was a very intimate celebration and she asked me to make the cake with pink frosting and flowers.
Children grow so fast that we have to enjoy every moment beside them.
And to my precious baby I can not wait to see you grow even more.
I love you.
Nothing like a good book to enjoy before bedtime.
From the first moment I started reading THE MOM 100 COOKBOOK I loved it is written in a way so incredible that it’s like reading a comedy.
It is completely refreshing and unlike any other cookbook I had read before and it led to us mothers without forgetting the rest of the family of course.
In addition content of delicious recipes, you’ll also find suggestions and tips to make life easier.
These cupcakes are part Katie Workman cookbook as option 2 to Birthday Chocolate Cake.
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature.
- 2 cups cake flour
- 2/3 cup unsweetened Dutch-processed cocoa powder
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 3 large eggs, at room temperature
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup sour cream, or another 1/2 cup whole milk
- 3/4 cup whole milk
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Line 24 medium-size cupcake cups with paper liner (you’ll need two cupcake pans with 12 cups each).
Fill each cupcake cup liner about two thirds full with the chocolate cake batter. Bake the cupcakes until a toothpick or wooden skewer inserted in the center comes out clean, 22 to 24 minutes.
Let the cupcakes cool in the pans on wire racks for 10 minutes, them carefully remove them from the pans, arrange them upright on wire racks, and let them cool completely before frosting.

On Saturday we celebrated the birthday of our baby, it’s not quite a baby, turned 3 years and was a special day for her, as it should.
I gave myself the task of making the birthday cake with a little help, I did the best I could with the cake for my daughter, keep in mind that I’m not a pastry chef making it an even bigger challenge.
Finally decorate this cake was very simple, filled with dulce de leche and fondant and decorated with flowers.
I am very happy and proud because she was delighted with the cake and although I wanted to make the decoration of the Beauty and the Beast, at least in its day she saw the love and the great effort to make her feel special.
I love you my beautiful Nathalie, this is a bit of how much you mean to me.
