Cake Monday!!!!!

One of my co-workers has instituted “Cake Monday”

Kelly is also a fellow blogger. She and her husband Josh are Team by Team Cuisine…….Where Food And Sports Collide……….they have sports food fever!

I thought maybe Cake Monday was a new trend…….ok, it might turn into one……..but Kelly started to bring cakes on Mondays because, well it’s Monday and nobody likes Mondays and cake makes it easier to take……soooo true.

I hoped I would not be raining on her parade, but I thought I would aid in the beat the Monday blues and bring cake also.

I think our fellow staff members are really enjoying it, as we both are bringing home empty cake platters on Monday afternoons.

My offering this week was a moist tender white cake recipe that I got from Robyn Stone at Add a Pinch. Her cake is titled The Best White Cake {Ever}, and it was.

Truth be told, even though I was a bakery manager for several years, I had not delved into making a cake from scratch…….well ok that one time, but it was like sawdust. So I went back to the box!

Betty and Wilma liked it too!!

I linked to this recipe from ……you guessed it…… Pinterest because it looked wonderful and it truly was…….Tim liked it, I liked it, and I received many complements at school. P.S. Betty and Wilma liked it too!!!


So thank you Robyn for what is The Best White Cake Recipe {Ever}.

I used a real “way back” recipe for the frosting. It is made with marshmallow fluff. Which I can eat by itself right out of the jar……..I don’t even need a spoon, ok maybe a spoon, but if one wasn’t available, I would just dip my fingers right in.

Now, add some butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, and vanilla bean and you have a super duper yummy frosting. A perfect frosting for the white cake.

I decorated it up a little as my co-workers only deserve the best!

If you are looking for a white cake recipe that …….”takes the cake”, this is it!!!!

I wonder what cake to make for next Monday? Hmmmmmmm
