Catholic Recipe: Birthday Cake

    INGREDIENTS

  • 2 packages white cake mix
  • Butter Frosting (see recipe)
  • Details

  • Yield: 9 inch layer and 18 cupcakes
  • Prep Time: 2 hours
  • Difficulty: N/A
  • Cost: n/a
  • For Ages: n/a
  • Origin:

When it's not tactful to have a candle for each year, have one for each guest, with a ribbon attached leading to a card with the guest's name and a small corsage for each lady, a boutonniere for each gentlemen.

This is a birthday cake with a different presentation.

DIRECTIONS

Prepare cake mix as directed on package; bake 1 9-inch layer layer and 18 large cupcakes. Cool. Frost top and sides of cake layer. Frost cupcakes upside down. Arrange 7 cupcakes on cake layer; surround with a circle of remaining cupcakes. Top each cupcake with a birthday candle.
