It's chubby pig's 10th birthday today! (^^)
I was going to use unsalted Lurpak (checked and planned the night before), but I don't know how I ended up with salted Emborg! Anyways, what's the big deal, right? Well, it's a BIG DEAL when the sugar is way off (approx. 30g less), AND one ends up with a SALTY plain cake!!! What a mess!
And to make things worse.. I did not make a sweet enough frosting to counter the salty cake! I actually chose call me cupcake's strawberry buttercream recipe because it didn't call for so much sugar! I omitted the strawberries and replaced with 2 tsp vanilla extract. I did however use 225g sugar, which should have been perfect.. but sadly, was still not quite enough to balance a very salty cake! (^^||)
Well, it's no vanilla dreams.. but I thought, how about summer skies and all things nice!? Think summers by the beach.. salty air and ice-cream cones = salty cake and fluffy "not-so-sweet" frosting *wink* Might work, right? (^^) fingers crossed..
So happy birthday, chubby! Here's wishing you summer skies and all things nice! Love you!
p.s my baby brother, papa pig loves this! mama pig too! i have no idea why.. papa says it's the best cupcake/cake i've ever made (???) i think he's just trying to be sweet.. awwwww.. (^^)
